Virtual Group Advising

This event occurs every week on Friday until Jun, 7th 2024
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

These sessions will take place on Fridays from May 17 through June 7, 2024

A group of UBC students having a discussion in a study room.

If you can’t make it to afternoon drop-in hours, or would just like to avoid the queue, stop by one of these online group advising sessions hosted on Fridays to get your questions answered. Jump in anytime during the 60 minutes to chat with Academic Advisors in a group Zoom session.

Space will be limited to 20 students at a time. If the Zoom room is at capacity when you join, please wait a few moments and an Advisor will admit you as soon as possible. If you have more specific course planning questions or other personal academic inquiries, it may be best to join the daily drop-in queue for a 1-on-1 advising session.
