Advising by email

For quick questions an advisor can often help you by email. We do our best to have questions answered by an advisor within 1 - 2 business days, or, when necessary, forward them to a more appropriate office. When emailing please provide your name, student ID, program, year level, and the nature of your question.


Advising appointments

Each Advisor is available for 30 minute appointments which are available at the following times:

  • Monday: 1:00pm to 4:00pm
  • Tuesday through Friday: 10:00am to 11:00am and 1:00pm to 4:00pm

Advisors do their best to keep these appointment hours. However, unexpected conflicts in their schedules may arise. If an advisor is unable to keep an appointment the office will inform you by email.

How to book an Advising appointment
