Student Advising during COVID-19

Online Advising During COVID 19
To support the University of Michigan's efforts to help minimize the spread of the COVID-19 virus, all meetings with our advisors will be virtual or via telephone until the university returns to regular operation.

Academic Advising

The DAAS Faculty and Staff remain available for student advising by phone, video chat, and/or email during the COVID crisis.  We are eager to provide assistance to all students, including DAAS majors and minors, students currently taking DAAS classes, and students who may want to take their first DAAS classes.  Please reach out to us if you have questions about spring/summer term classes, fall classes, DAAS major or minor requirements, or any other questions that we might help to answer.
