How can I prepare for my drop-in session?

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


Contact us at advising@douglascollege.ca. 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 advising@douglascollege.ca .
