Once you've finished your conversation, you can download a copy of it to refer to later. Any links Ask Elbee shared with you will work in your downloaded copy.
If Ask Elbee can't answer your question…
Sometimes, Ask Elbee can't answer your question. This may be because we haven't taught Ask Elbee the answers for that topic yet or your question is specific to your student record. If that happens, you'll be able to submit your question as an online inquiry for a staff member to respond to later.
Frequently Asked Questions
If Ask Elbee can't answer your question, you'll be able to submit your question as an online inquiry for a staff member to respond. Your question will also be sent to our chatbot team so that we're able to teach Ask Elbee the answer for the future.
Applicants, students, and their families can all ask their questions to get helpful information about deadlines, procedures, and more. Ask Elbee is best able to help students, but staff and faculty are more than welcome to ask student-focused questions too.
