Appointments will resume on September 1st and can be schedule on the Navigate App after 4:30 pm on August 31st.

NOTE: Drop-in hours maybe adjusted depending on drop-in demand.

During these hours, UCFY students can check in for a virtual drop-in via the Navigate Student App (see video below for instructions). Once checked in, students will be seen on a first available basis. Wait times will vary. A text message and/or email will be sent with a Zoom meeting link when the academic counselor is available.  

Due to the large volume of students needing assistance, students not present in the Zoom meeting within 10 minutes may be marked as no-show and required to check-in a second time to be seen on a first available basis. 

During drop ins, UCFY email responses may be delayed longer than usual. While email requests will continue to be monitored and responses provided, priority assistance will be given to students seen on a virtual drop-in basis.
