Ways to be Advised by an Academic Advisor

Do you want to be advised, but want to avoid meeting in person or on the phone with an academic advisor? Are you detail-oriented and follow written instructions well? Are you attentive and monitor your Blinn College email? Remote Advising can work for you.

  1. After you complete the Remote Advising form, all responses will be sent to your Blinn College email address and may require additional responses from you.
