Skype Advising


The Academic Advising Center offers advising sessions via Skype during the fall and spring semesters. This service enables students to talk to an academic advisor from any location with an Internet connection. In-person advising is still the preferred method; however, Skype advising is ideal for students who cannot attend on-campus meetings.

If you would like to schedule a Skype Advising appointment, please complete the following steps:

  1. Download Skype for free at Skype.com. Please do not use your mobile device for your advising appointment.
  2. Register and create a Skype Login Name and Password.
  3. Confirm that you have a webcam and microphone.
  4. Schedule a Skype appointment by visiting Kiely Hall 217 or by calling the Academic Advising Center at (718) 997-5599.
  5. Provide the staff member scheduling your appointment with your Skype username.
  6. Prior to your appointment: Prepare for your advising appointment by reviewing DegreeWorks and your transcript/course history in CUNYfirst. Have your questions for the advisor ready.
  7. Sign into Skype with your account at your appointment time.
  8. Your advisor will initiate the video call.
  9. Have your QCard available for authentication.
  10. After your Skype advising session, the advising documents from your session will be sent to your QMail.

Due to the limited number of Skype appointments, please schedule your session in advance.​​​​​​​
