Based upon the MSU Denver decision to keep students off campus, all CPS academic advisors will be moving all academic advising appointments to either phone appointments or video/screen sharing advising through the Office 365 Teams application.

When you schedule an appointment online, please make sure to include your phone number, the day/time/advisor, and preference so that we can update your appointment details. If you request a Teams video/screen sharing appointment but we’re having issues with technology, we will default to a phone appointment. 

Please send an email to if you have any questions or concerns, or if you would like to schedule an appointment.  Please include your name, 900 number, major, phone number, days/times you are available, and preference for either phone appointment or video/screen sharing. 

Thank you!
