Your advisor will call you on your mobile telephone, using the number listed in HUB, when you are next in the queue (Your academic advisor’s waiting list). Make sure you are prepared to answer a call, even if the number is not recognized by your phone; for example, a private, blocked, or unknown number.

Please make sure that this number is accurate. (You may update your phone number in HUB by referring to this tutorial.) If more than one phone number is listed for you in HUB, the advisor will try your mobile phone first.
