Fall/Winter 2021 Enrolment

To help us identify which courses, sections and delivery formats students are unable to access, complete our LA&PS Course Demand Form.

Service Updates: Our phased return to campus enables us to provide a hybrid delivery of advising services via QLESS virtual drop-ins for phone or Zoom meetings, or in-person advising at 103 Central Square. Limited in-person advising services are available via drop-in by checking in at 105H Central Square Monday – Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., with our last drop-in timeslot at 3:30 p.m. Virtual drop-ins are available for most LA&PS departments Monday – Thursday from 10 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., but often close very early, as our virtual queues fill up quickly. Please note that to maintain safe social distancing as per provincial health guidelines and provide effective service, we are requesting that only our students attend our in-person appointments or drop-ins at this time. Thank you!
