Since we have to be off campus starting Monday and with registration on the horizon, I wanted to lay out how we can communicate over this period of time.  Please do not hesitate to contact me!!  I know you may have concerns about your audit, etc. so we can communicate through several modes.  If you have specific paperwork, we will deal with it as it comes up.

1) Email me–if we can answer your questions via email, this is super convenient.  Please note that due to FERPA concerns, you must email me from your UFL email.

2) ZOOM office hours–if you prefer to talk, please come see me during my virtual office hours on Tuesday.  Please see the url before you’ll need.  Please have picture ID handy to show even if I know you.  We have to follow FERPA guidelines, so I want to be consistent and fair across all meetings.

Tuesday office hours: 1-3
