      If you scheduled a virtual MS Teams appointment...

      If you have not downloaded MS Teams yet, you may do so here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/microsoft-teams/download-app.

      On the day of your appointment, open Microsoft Teams a few minutes before your scheduled appointment time. Log in using your ULink information. Once you have logged in, your advisor will message you before beginning your video appointment.

      You don't need a special link and you don't need to message anyone - just open Teams and wait to be contacted by your advisor!

      If you log in more than 10 minutes after your scheduled appointment time or do not respond to your advisor, you may be asked to reschedule.
