Faculty Office Hours and Personal Appointments
Faculty office hours are a time for you to drop in to ask questions and get advice or information. Even in the virtual environment, many faculty members have hours set aside to welcome students seeking more explanation about topics discussed in class or assistance with assignments.
Talking with your instructors one-on-one during virtual or in-person office hours is a great way to make a personal connection and gain the understanding you need for academic success. And your instructors appreciate knowing you care about the course and are making the extra effort!
Each faculty member establishes their own schedule, so check the syllabus and your instructor's welcome announcement in all of your classes for information on setting up appointments or dropping in to office hours.
