Message from AgBio Student Services regarding COVID-19
AgBio Student Services is committed to doing our part to keep our students, faculty, staff, and campus community safe. In light of public health concerns related to COVID-19, AgBio Student Services is working remotely, but we are still available to help.
Our regular working hours are 8:30 am-12 pm, 1-4:30 pm, Monday to Friday. You can reach us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Although in-person advising appointments have been suspended, you can continue to book phone appointments online.
We ask for your patience as we are transitioning to working remotely and finding new ways to support you in these challenging times!
Don’t forget to add the AgBio Undergraduate Resources channel to your favorites in PAWS! Many of the important resources that we would connect you to in an in-person appointment are posted online in this channel.
