Virtual Advising

Virtual advising appointments are available weekly for non-traditional students.   To request a virtual advising appointment via WebEx, please email Shelley Hunter at foxadvis@temple.edu with at least 3 of dates and time you are available.

If you are an Online BBA program student, schedule an appointment online.  If you have problems schedule an appointment online, please email Ms. Shelley Hunter at foxadvis@temple.edu to schedule a virtual advising appointment.

Also known as on-line advising, virtual advising is provided via WebEx, a web-based conferencing software. You are not required to set up a WebEx Account to engage in the meeting.

Shortly before your scheduled appointment, you will receive an e-mail instructing you on how to join the meeting. Please note that the e-mail will be sent to your Temple University e-mail address. You can choose to use your webcam or a toll-free phone number to communicate with the virtual advisor.
