Skype™ + Advising = Skype™Vising

Advising Services is excited to blend the use of technology and academic advising. If you're a distance learning Oakton student, you can receive academic advising wherever you are, through the use of Skype™.

Skype™ advising is available for students enrolled in distance learning classes who:

  • are taking only online courses (no face-to-face courses)
  • have successfully completed at least one online course
  • are not international students
  • are not on academic restriction (probation, suspension, ESL placements)
  • have no outstanding financial obligation to the College

Skype™Vising ... Taking your advising experience to a new level.

To schedule an appointment, contact Advising Services at 847.635.1700 (Des Plaines) or 847.635.1400 (Skokie)
