Undergraduate Geosciences Advising

Tampa Campus Advising

While the geosciences advisor for the Tampa campus is out of the office on maternity leave, there are advisors and offices to support you! Please email for updates on scheduling appointments and general advising questions.

Due to the current university mandate regarding COVID-19, our office is working remotely.

Your advisor is still providing virtual appointments using Microsoft Teams.

As we are in the midst of a strange and uncertain time, our current goal is to advise our active USF students on their upcoming registration.

If you are a prospective student or a student who has been admitted to USF in the Summer or Fall, we kindly ask that you email our office for any questions or concerns you have, instead of scheduling an appointment at this time.

For shorter questions that would normally be addressed during a drop-in appointment, please email your advisor at If the question cannot be addressed via email, your advisor will either recommend that you schedule a 30-minute appointment, or she will schedule you for a brief virtual appointment.

How will virtual appointments work:

Please schedule your appointment via Archivum as usual. The only option for an appointment at this time is a virtual appointment.

Once you have scheduled your appointment, you will receive an email with the information required to log-in to your virtual, Microsoft Teams appointment. Please note, this email will not arrive immediately, but will arrive at least the day before your appointment.

At the time of your appointment, please video or phone call into the Microsoft Teams meeting, as outlined in the email, to begin talking with an advisor. If you have any trouble with this process, you can email

Please keep the following in mind:

The Teams link you receive will prompt you to join the meeting by downloading the Microsoft Teams Desktop app, or by joining on the web instead. Either one of these options will connect you to your advisor. Therefore, you are not required to download the Teams app.

You can also choose to call in with your mobile device using the toll-free number provided. Once you call the number, you will be prompted to enter the conference ID, followed by the # sign. This will connect you to your advisor for an audio conference.

Please be patient: If you log-in and your advisor has not yet joined, they may be wrapping up the previous appointment.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation!
