Online Scheduling for Students & Recent Grads

Want to schedule an appointment with an OCS or OPICS advisor? Log into Symplicity now to get started!

To accommodate all students, we ask that you schedule only one appointment at a time with an advisor. For mock interviews, please only schedule one mock interview with OCS or OPICS; your advisor can then recommend if you should schedule an additional mock interview.  Thank you for your understanding. 

  1. Once you’ve logged into Symplicity, under Shortcuts on the Home page click on “Make an Appointment”
  2. Click on “Request New Appointment”
  3. Choose your filters – you can filter by appointment type, date and time, office location (OCS or OPICS) and/or by counselor name
  4. Click Check Availability
  5. Select your appointment date and time by clicking on the counselor name
  6. A pop-up confirmation window will appear; complete all required fields and click Submit. A confirmation email will be sent as well as a reminder email.
