Connect with Student Services

Speak with an Academic Advisor

Have questions about your program, degree requirements, or how to make the most of your LFS experience? Are personal challenges impacting your studies? We are here to support you throughout your degree.

Connect with your LFS academic advisors for Group or confidential one-on-one Drop-in meetings, all on Zoom. You can also email your inquiry to lfs.advising@ubc.ca or connect with Academic Advisors and fellow students on ROOTSS discussion boards.

Group and Drop-in Sessions

You can meet with Academic Advisors in Group or Drop-in sessions, all on Zoom. Check the LFS Undergrad Events Calendar  for the times and Zoom links for all sessions.

For Group sessions, there is no waiting – everyone is admitted directly into the group Zoom meeting. Stay as long as you like, ask questions, and benefit from hearing other students’ questions, too! If you need to meet with an advisor one-on-one, message the host and they’ll put you in a private room with an Academic Advisor if space is available.   

For Drop-in sessions, follow the prompts to join the virtual waiting room; your one-on-one meeting will begin as soon as space opens for you. Once we have reached capacity, we will close the waiting room. If the waiting room is closed during a drop-in advising session, try at a later time or a later session. Drop-in appointments are limited to 15 minutes––please come prepared with questions. 

Submit Advising Requests

We also have dedicated online forms for specific requests. These include a form for requesting an academic concession if your studies have been derailed by personal circumstances. There is also a form for requesting graduation checks or letters of permission.
