Continuity of Advising in the presence of Coronavirus

Please monitor USF Coronavirus Updates. USF describes advising continuity in the student toolkit for Academic Continuity Resources. The following message builds on this with details specific to CSE students. As of March 13, 2020 all advising will be done online. This includes review and approval of graduation applications for fall 2020 graduates. Note that spring 2020 and summer 2020 graduates should have completed their graduation checkout last fall.

For advising, students need to schedule an appointment via Archivum Student Portal

• CS and CpE students please schedule advising appointments with John Morgan
• IT and CyS students please schedule advising appointments with Marjorie Fontalvo

Students will receive a Microsoft Teams invitation for their advising appointment and advising will then be done via Microsoft Teams using a laptop with camera at the scheduled time. No software needs to be installed other than a web browser. If Microsoft Teams cannot be run on the student’s laptop, advising by telephone will also be possible. For urgent advising needs (that cannot wait for scheduling), please email preferably during walk in hours. Please add "Urgent" to your email subject line. We will find a way to quickly get you the advising you need. Please email John Morgan.

For graduation checkout, please see here. Complete the form and then scan it (or take a high quality picture with your phone). Please (this is important!) name the file as lastname (using your last name) and then email the file (the scanned form) to Mayra Morfin. This is so that we can keep track of all graduation applications. Then schedule a graduation checkout appointment with Mayra Morfin via Archivum Student Portal. As confirmation for the appointment, students will receive a Microsoft Teams invitation for their graduation checkout appointment and the checkout review meeting will then be done via Microsoft Teams using a laptop with camera at the scheduled time. No software needs to be installed other than a web browser. If Microsoft Teams cannot be run on the student’s laptop, a telephone appointment will also be possible. For career advising following your graduation checkout, please contact Dr. Hendrix (CS and CpE), Dr. Small (IT), or Dr. Chellappan (CyS) by email.
