Science Academic Services

Science Academic Services (SAS) is the undergraduate advising office for all Science students at York. Our team provides a confidential and secure environment for Science students to get assistance. The SAS office is a great place to start, if SAS does not have the answer they will be able to point you in the right direction.

If you are uncertain about a procedure, regulation, or policy, Science Academic Services is the first place you should visit. SAS has advisors available during regular office hours. The Office of Science Academic Services believes in an open-door policy and provides advising for all students within the Faculty.
