Academic Advising

Academic advisors provide information, guidance and support to help you achieve your academic goals. Meet with an advisor at least once every academic session to ensure you're on the right track. We can help you understand your degree requirements and academic record, direct you to campus resources, and more!

If you are a new student that has received an offer of admission but have not yet started your first term of classes, please visit our new students webpage to find the information you need for enrolment and next steps.

VIRTUAL Advising with QLess

Virtual drop-in advising via QLESS is available for ECON majors seeking academic advice. Advising is provided on a first come, first served basis. Each session is about 15 minutes.

If you are attempting to join our queue in QLess during our drop-in hours and notice that the queue is greyed out (or has disappeared), this means the queue is full to capacity.

Queueing with QLess is simple! This is how it works:

  1. Join our Virtual Kiosk OR download the QLESS app on your smartphone from the Google Play Store or iTunes (Open the app and select "Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies")
  2. Join the Economics ONLY Virtual Call Back Advising line and indicate your preferred method of communication.
  3. To connect via Zoom: Please indicate your request for a Zoom meeting in the NOTES section. 
  4.  When it is your turn, you will receive a text from the QLess app letting you know that you have arrived at the front of the line
  5. An advisor will summon you from the line and connect with you via phone or Zoom.

**If you have requested a Zoom meeting, the advisor will send a Zoom link to the email address we have on file. Please allow a few minutes for the email once you have reached the front of the line; also check your spam/junk folder for the invitation.  

The queue will close for the day once it reaches capacity.

Hours of operation:
Tuesday – Thursday: 10:00AM (ET) – 3:00PM (ET)

NOTE: QLESS is the fastest way to reach an ECON advisor.
