Fall 2020 is in full swing. We've gone virtual with our advising practices.  Please check below for information on appointments and our drop-in schedule.

Please continue to check the KSU website for information pertaining to Covid-19 and health and safety initatiatives the university is taking.

  • Due to the need for social distancing, the CSM Advising space is unable to meet that expectation within advising offices.  Due to this, we will be hosting Virtual and Phone Appointments along with a Virtual Drop-in Calendar for the Fall 2020 semester.  

    Please be aware of important KSU calendar information-


  • CSM Advising will be hosting virtual and phone appointment types through our Navigate software.

    1) Set up an Appointment via the Navigate software

    2) Follow the instructions below based on type of appointment scheduled


    We will be using “Microsoft Teams” for our virtual appointments.

    • Download and ensure you can log into Microsoft Teams
      • Teams is available on the Microsoft Teams website for downloand and on many smartphone platforms
      • You will log in using the same log in information as your KSU email
    • Your academic advisor will send you a message at the start of the appointment


    • Please ensure that you email your academic advisor with the appropriate contact information (phone number) you would like for them to call for your appointment
  • You will find the drop-in times/availability and key notes about Drop-ins on the Appointments page.

    We will be using Microsoft Teams for our drop-ins.  As a CSM Major, you received an email titled “CSM Advising Fall 2020 Open Advising” in August 2020 with the access code for the Sci/Math Advising Drop-ins Team.  If you have not received the access link, please email csmadvising@kennesaw.edu for instructions for access.

    • Download and ensure you can log into Microsoft Teams (you will log in using the same log in information for your KSU email)
      • When you log in, add yourself to the “Sci/Math Advising Drop-Ins” team per instructions from the email
    • When you enter the Team, you will notice a “General” chat page.  We are using this chat page as our sign-in sheet.ONLY CHAT ONE TIME PER VISIT.  You will chat the type of advising you are interested in.
      • For example, if I'm here for biology, then I’d type in the chat “BIOLOGY.”
    • An advisor will send you an individual chat when you are next in line and ask if you’d like to type a chat back and forth or do a video call.  If for any reason you need to leave before being helped, please reply to your own chat with “I will come back later.”
      • If you do not respond to the individual chat in 3 minutes, the advisor will need to move on to the next student and you will have to put yourself back into the advising queue with a new chat.

  • To ensure that advisors have the opportunity to answer in as timely a manner as possible, you MUST email the individual listed based on academic major/last name.
