Connect with an LFS Academic Advisor

Meeting with an Academic Advisor (Ella, Bonita, Joel) is a good idea for when you have general questions about:

  • planning your program or degree requirements
  • how to make the most of your LFS academic and non-academic experience
  • a personal challenge that is impacting your academics

We provide confidential advising and will do our best to answer your questions, or help connect you with appropriate resources. There are 4 main ways to connect with us:


Drop-in Zoom Advising

Attend drop-in to connect one-on-one with an Academic Advisor! Our drop-in hours are posted on the LFS Undergrad Event Calendar. Our typical drop-in week includes the following hours:

  • Monday from 1-3pm
  • Tuesday from 9-11am
  • Wednesday from 1-3pm
  • Thursday – no drop-in offered
  • Friday from 9-11am

Keep in mind that all hours are posted in Vancouver time (PDT)!

Instructions:

  • Click the link below during our open hours, and you’ll be brought directly to our Zoom virtual waiting room
  • Password: 12345
  • Depending on the number of students in the waiting room, it may be some time before an Advisor connects with you. 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. We look forward to connecting!
