We offer advising services 12 months of the year. Get a headstart on planning your future at CapU with help from our advisors! 

Advising Services Schedule

Connect with us for a quick appointment. Ideally, this service is for students who have taken 60 credits or less, have already met with an Academic Advisor, and have a program planner on file. Drop-in sessions are intended to be 10 – 15 minutes in duration. Further appointments might be needed for in-depth program planning (60+ credits, or complex situations).

You must have an updated program planner created by an academic advisor, request your program planner by emailing advising@capilanou.ca.

You can book in-depth (longer) advising sessions through the appointment booking system.

Joining a drop-in session

  • Click the Zoom link to join as an attendee.
  • You will be added to the queue based on when you arrive.
  • Have your student number ready.

Join virtual drop-in

Academic Advisors are here to support you with remote and in-person appointments. We strongly encourage you to think about your interests and what you are hoping to gain from the appointment. This is ideal for individuals who:

  • require assistance with course selection and initial program planning
  • want to check program progression
  • are returning to studies following an absence (especially if you have missed two major semesters e.g. fall and spring)
  • are exploring transfer options after a period of study at Capilano University
  • need course pre-requisites, elective options, concentrations
  • continued support for a previously established program plan / progression checks and
  • newly admitted students wanting assistance in starting your academic career

Remote / virtual appointments: you can pre-book one week ahead with the following options: phone call, Microsoft Teams, or Zoom. New remote appointments are added to the virtual academic advising calendar one week in advance. If there are no appointments displayed, check back every Wednesday for the following week's schedule.

In-person appointments: if you are on campus, you can reserve your spot through same-day bookings. New in-person appointments are added by 9 a.m. same day, Monday through Thursday.

Service hours: 9 a.m. – 4 p.m., Monday to Friday (except for holidays).
