Academic Advising offers 30-minute drop-in sessions for students wishing to meet one-on-one with an Academic Advisor for support with specific questions and issues. Drop-in sessions are offered on a first-come-first-served basis each day. Pre-booked 30-minute advising sessions are also available for students and should be booked two or more days in advance.

Visit us in BR230 on the second floor of the Birch Building at the North Vancouver campus.         

Course Planning Workshops

Welcome, all newly admitted students! 

Newly admitted students are invited to attend a course planning session offered every fall and spring term by the Academic Advising team to help you and fellow students navigate your options. At our group advising workshops, you learn how to look up and choose courses and find out which classes you need to satisfy your program’s requirements.

Note: next course planning workshops will be held for the Fall 2019 term and the dates for these workshops will be posted by May 2019.

Booking Advising Appointments

Appointments are approximately 30 minutes in duration, booked in advance and provide an opportunity for in-depth program planning.
