GPO Office 

Dr. Qin will hold the GPO office hours over Zoom starting from Monday, March 16, 2020 and lasting through the end of the spring 2021 semester. My Zoom office ID is 334-444-8888. The GPO office hours are scheduled from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. on every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. In case Dr. Qin is talking with another student over Zoom during the office hours, you will have to wait in the Zoom waiting room to be admitted.

To avert waiting a long time in the GPO virtual office, you may send emails requesting Dr. Qin to facilitate the following services.

  • International Graduate Assistantship Award Form (IGAA)

  • Recommended plan of study

  • Curriculum change forms (e.g., add PhD into your Master’s degree program)
