Online Advising Appointment

Book a 30 minute appointment with an international advisor.

Make sure to select "International Student - Advising" and "International ONLINE Appointment" as location. Include your KPU email address in the notes section; you will receive a separate email with a link to join. 

* Students who arrive more than 15 minutes past the start time of their appointment are considered “no-shows” and will have to book a new appointment.

* If you are unable to attend your appointment for any reason, we request that you cancel your appointment as soon as possible through Advisor Connect (below 'Book an Appointment' link) so another student may book the timeslot.
