NEW! Skype advising (beta mode)

As always, we strongly recommend traditional face-to-face appointments if you need physical documents, or if you have paperwork that needs an advisor signature. However, if you're not able to meet with your Mike Ilitch School of Business Undergraduate Advisor in person, you can now schedule a Skype video appointment!

We strongly recommend using a desktop computer or laptop with a stable internet connection in a quiet environment for safety and security reasons. Please do not use mobile devices. We reserve the right to cancel any Skype appointment initiated on a mobile device.

It is the student's responsibility to make sure they are in an environment that complies with all FERPA rules and regulations. Scheduling a Skype Appointment is the student's expressed acknowledgment of the FERPA rules and regulations in the link above.
