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? Connect with your LFS academic advisors for confidential one-on-one Zoom or in-person appointments. We are here to support you throughout your degree. We offer academic advising via Booked or individual Drop-in appointments (both in-person or via Zoom). You can also email your inquiry to lfs.advising@ubc.ca,or fill out one of our online advising request forms.

We offer academic advising via Booked Appointments or individual Drop-in Meetings (in-person or via Zoom).

Booked Appointments

To schedule a Booked Appointment, answer the questions below. If there is no current availability, check the LFS Undergraduate Events Calendar for the times of Drop-in Advising sessions via Zoom or in-person. All Drop-in Advising sessions are one-on-one. If you do not see any current availability, check back later, as additional appointments become available every 72 hours.

To help us meet with the maximum number of students, appointment times are limited to 15 minutes––please come prepared with questions. If you need more time, your advisor will schedule a follow-up appointment.

Drop-in Meetings

If you are unable to find an available Booked Appointment, you can attend a drop-in session and meet one-on-one with an Academic Advisor. Meetings are held in-person or via Zoom. Check the LFS Undergrad Events calendar for the times of all drop-in sessions. Drop-in appointments are limited to 15 minutes––please come prepared with questions.

For in-person meetings, please come to the H.R. MacMillan Building (room 344) during the scheduled time and check in at the front desk (ring the bell if no one is available).

For Zoom meetings, visit the calendar and click into a Zoom Drop-in Advising session. 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 for the day, no new students will be admitted to the waiting room. If capacity has been reached, try a later session or connect with us via email at lfs.advising@ubc.ca.

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 year-level promotion, adding or changing your major, graduation checks or letters of permission.
