How can I prepare for my drop-in session?

  • Review Douglas College’s  Program and Course Catalogue for your program requirements and review the Course planning pages
  • If you are thinking of transferring to another institution, research the institution and program you are interested in
  • Come prepared with a list of questions
  • For questions about your course selection, review the course schedule through myAccount or the course scheduling tool, and write down the course name, number and CRN for any that you want to discuss with your advisor. 
  • Review the Academic Advising website 

For help with course registration, watch our registration how-to videos or contact the Registrar's office helpline at 604.527.5478.

Please note: Academic Advisors are not responsible for being familiar with all programs offered by other institutions.

Remember that during peak advising periods (i.e. the Add/Drop period during priority and late registration, after midterms, the end of the semester, etc.), your advisors will be very busy and there may be a delay to email replies or in making an appointment. (Be proactive and meet with your advisors well in advance of registration or other deadlines!)



Contact us at Please include your full name, student number and date of birth along with your specific questions.

Email replies may take longer during the first two weeks of classes in a given semester, due to the high volume of emails we receive during this time.


A very limited number of evening appointments are available, if you are unable to attend a drop-in session as outlined above. Appointments are only offered on Tuesday evenings at the Coquitlam Campus and Wednesday evenings at the New Westminster Campus from 5-6 pm based on availability. Please note, spaces are limited.

To book, contact the Registrar's Office at 604 527 5478 or . Please provide your reason for needing an appointment, in detail, along with your student number, date of birth and full legal name.
