Summer 2021 is Here! Welcome to our Incoming Students!

Summer and Fall registration for current students is currently live! And, welcome to all incoming students that will be joining us at orientation throughout the Summer. Please look below for our operational 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 the expectation of face to face advising within our offices.  We're currently offering various ways to virtually access us for advising!

    Please be aware of important KSU calendar information-


    • Due to major software changes for Advising, we will be going through extensive training this week that will require us to have very limited availability.
    • May 17th-21st, we will host virtual drop-ins from 1:00pm-3:00pm for time sensitive advising circumstances. Please check the Appointments page to schedule
    • Download and ensure you can log into Microsoft Teams (you will log in using the same log in information as your KSU email)
      • There is also a phone application you can download, if easier!
    • When in Microsoft Teams, you should see a tab/icon for Teams. Click it and when on the Teams page, it will show you any teams you are a member of. In the top right corner, you will see Join or Create Team. Please click it and use the Join a team with a code option.
      • THE TEAM CODE IS: 0412se4
      • It should add you to our Sci/Math Advising Drop-Ins Team
    • 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 advice with 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.
    • If you need any support with getting to the team, please email
    • Current KSU Students or Students Seeking Appointements: Please check our Microsoft Bookings software instructions under our Appointments page to schedule a virtual or phone appointment!
      • Appointments will be available on non-orientation days due to our need to to assist students as they are on-boarding to the university.
    • Incoming Students Starting in Fall 2021 Semester: We highly encourage scheduling an appointment with your assigned advisor prior to orientation.  Your advisor will be emailing you as we are shared lists of orientation students.  Feel free to also schedule an appointment using the Appointments page.  We will also have a virtual drop-ins available for incoming students.  Please check our CSM New Students page for more information.
  • 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.
