Suggested Layout

 

Test Call

WSCUC staff will schedule a test call with your institution to confirm that everything is setup correctly and that both the audio and video are working. The test should be made using the same equipment and room setup that will be used for the OSR call.

OSR Call

WSCUC staff will establish the call roughly 15 minutes before the team and staff are scheduled to meet. This extra time is to ensure there are no problems.
