Fall 2020 is in full swing. We're virtual with our advising practices!  Please check below for information on Open Advising for Spring 2021.

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 the expectation of face to face advising within our offices.  Due to this, we will be hosting virtual and/or phone appointment types for advising!

    Open Advising is here! What's Open Advising?  Open Advising is a first come, first served advising drop-ins process with all of the advisors in the office!  This allows us to assist the most students possible that need help with Spring 2021 registration!  Please check below for Virtual and Phone dates and processes!

    Please be aware of important KSU calendar information-

    As a CSM Major, you received an email titled “CSM Advising and Spring 2021 Registration Information!” on Oct 9 with the access code for the Sci/Math Advising Drop-ins Team.  If you have not received the access link, please email 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

      • 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.
