Talk with an LFS Academic Advisor

Meeting with an Academic Advisor is a good idea for when you have general questions about planning your program, degree requirements, or how to make the most of your LFS academic and non-academic experience. We’re also a good place to start if you are experiencing a personal challenge that is impacting your academics or you don’t know where else to turn. We provide confidential advising and will connect you with appropriate resources. Throughout your degree, we’re all here to help. During this time, we’re offering both Drop-in and Group Virtual Advising.

Drop-in Virtual Advising:


Meet one-on-one with an LFS Academic Advisor to have your questions answered.


  • Mondays and Wednesdays from 2:00-3:30pm
  • Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:30am-12:00pm

*All times are in Pacific Daylight Time (PDT). Convert your time zone, if needed, here.


Drop-in is being hosted on Zoom, which is a video/audio web-conferencing tool that lets us meet in real time. If you’re new to Zoom, find a guide to set-up here.

To attend drop-in, just click the link below during our open hours, and you’ll be brought to our Zoom virtual waiting room. Depending on the number of students in the waiting room, it may be some time before an Advisor connects with you, so thank you for your patience. We are connecting students with an Academic Advisor as quickly as we can. It’s just like visiting us in person, but you have to provide your own candy supply while you wait!


Please note that this link will only work if drop-in is open, and once we have reached capacity for the day, the meeting room will be locked and no new students will be admitted to the waiting room. Thank you for understanding.
