We ask that advisors make every effort to connect with students during the advising period: March 25 – April 8. You can utilize Zoom or Meeting Space. Communicating about schedules and other issues via email or phone is also acceptable. Advisors can make use of all tools on RAIL such as the transcripts and degree evaluations. Most forms are online: https://www.shepherd.edu/aac-students/advising-forms and https://www.shepherd.edu/registrar/registrar-forms. The student pin codes will still be sent to campus mailboxes although email options are being explored via the Registrar’s office. The faculty and staff in the Advising Assistance Center are on-hand to assist and can be reached at: 304-876-5317; firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com; and/or firstname.lastname@example.org.
