Meeting with an Advisor

Emily Carr Academic Advising offers comprehensive advising services to all new and current Emily Carr undergraduate degree students. The offices are located in the Student Commons. Your advisors are Danielle Zandvliet and Andrea Nunes.

Drop-in advising sessions

Drop-in sessions are limited to 10 minutes. If your question cannot be answered within this time we recommend you schedule an appointment. Some questions require longer conversations (changing majors, etc.) and are therefore not appropriate for a drop-in session.

Sign in to Drop-in Advising by writing your name (clearly!) on clipboard to get in line; please wait in the Student Commons area until an Advisor calls your name.

Regular Drop-in hours:

11:00am - 12:30pm, Tuesdays - Fridays

**Please note that there are no appointments available Tuesday November 12 to Friday November 29; however advising is also accessible by email

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

**Please note that September 9th - 13th the advisors are only available for drop-in sessions. See the drop-in schedule above.

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 office 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.
