Weekly Update

October 5-9, 2020

Schedule Your TRIO Meeting

Nathifa and Candace are now available to complete your TRIO Advisor meeting for Fall 2020. You can meet with either advisor for this semester's meeting.


We will be utilizing Microsoft Bookings to schedule these meetings. See the below video on how to utilize the Bookings system and connect to your meeting during your scheduled time with Microsoft teams. ***These meetings are VIRTUAL***


There are two things that need to be done BEFORE your meeting with TRIO SSP:


  • A meeting (via appointment or email) with your academic advisor to have your Spring 2021 courses prepared or verified
  • A Student Needs Assessment has been completed at least 48 hours before your semester meeting

**If these two criteria are not met before your meeting, we will need to cancel your appointment. You will be responsible for rescheduling a new meeting time.**


ALL TRIO SSP students will need to complete a semester meeting, including students who were admitted to the program Fall 2020. Failure to meet with a TRIO advisor for this meeting will result in a Academic Hold on your WMU account.


Once you are ready, book your appointment here: wmich.edu/triostudentsuccess/advising
