During this call, I will review the program in depth, discuss what to expect as a UC Online student, explain how to navigate student systems, go through how to set up a time to meet with their academic advisor, and answer any questions about the enrollment process or the AAB Accounting program. The program also has a self-paced online orientation that gives more program-specific information, allows students to familiarize themselves with the online portal, and informs them on available resources.

Check-ins: I check in regularly throughout the semester with my students, reminding them of upcoming deadlines, class registrations, and anything else that has come up in the program.
