Summarizing Advising Contacts

Type of Contact

The “type of contact” codes allow advisers to categorize each advising contact by the manner in which the advising took place (e.g., individual interview, e-mail correspondence, telephone call, etc.) This does not mean that every contact with a student, including contacts made through listservs and mass mailings, must be recorded. This code simply gives advisers a way to indicate how the advising contacts they choose to record have been made.
