Academic advising is available through the following services.
Drop-in sessions are about 20 minutes long and offered on a first-come, first-served basis. When you arrive, you’ll be asked to register by completing an advising drop-in form. You can register up to 30 minutes prior to each drop-in period.
New Westminster Campus: Room 2700
Coquitlam Campus: Room A1450
**NEW** Anvil Office Tower (777 Columbia Street) Room 720. 1 Academic Advisor will be available during the drop-in hours.
ANVIL CLOSED for Academic Advising services from Feb. 19 - 22 (during reading break).
Drop-in services will be offered from 10:30 am - 12:30 pm instead.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 email@example.com . Please provide your reason for needing an appointment, in detail, along with your student number, date of birth and full legal name.
