All CPDC services, resources, workshops and events are 100% VIRTUAL for the spring semester!

The CPDC staff continues to be available to assist you virtually via Zoom, phone or email while our physical Advising Center location (West Wing) remains closed to protect the well-being of our university community. Our virtual office hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, however, in order to accommodate students in different time zones, your Career Consultant has early morning and evening (EST) appointments available. Visit Handshake to see available times or contact your Career Consultant.

You can setup a virtual appointment with your Career Consultant via Handshake but BEFORE setting up your appointment, please refer to this map from the CPDC to help determine your appropriate next steps. Following these guidelines will help ensure your appointment with a Career Consultant is most beneficial.


With no need to schedule an appointment or register, these virtual sessions with a Career Peer Mentor (CPM) are available Sunday through Thursday from 9-10 p.m. Open to all undergraduates in all colleges, this quick 10-minute conversation is an easy and convenient way to ask whatever career-related topic is on your mind. Click HERE for more details, including a complete schedule and Zoom link. Advanced registration is not required, however, please be patient in the Zoom waiting room as other students may be ahead of you in the queue.
