The Sky(pe)’s the Limit

Skype™ + Academic Advising = Skype™Vising

Advising Services is excited to bring the latest technology to our academic advising. If you're a distance-learning Oakton student, you can receive 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, call 847.635.1741 (Des Plaines) or 847.635.1400 (Skokie)
