Drop-in Zoom advising (September 7 to October 8)

Come speak with an ambassador about your global learning opportunities! Drop-in advising is best suited for students who are not yet working with a specific advisor, have not yet applied for or been accepted into a program, or are seeking general advice about application processes, available programs, etc. 

We appreciate your patience in the Zoom "waiting room" - we advise students one at a time and will let you in as soon as the student ahead of you has left. 

Mondays & Tuesdays

12 PM - 4 PM Mountain Time

Book an appointment

There may be circumstances where you need to meet with a specific program advisor - for example, after you have been accepted and are being nominated or registered for your program. Follow these steps to book an appointment using the online Advising Portal. 

It is possible to book in-person or Zoom appointments. Ensure you read the appointment text carefully to select the correct appointment type.

For Zoom appointments, check your UCalgary email account before your appointment starts, as you will be emailed a link for your Zoom appointment. 

For in-person appointments, come to our office and bring your UCID. Please note that you must adhere to UCalgary's COVID-19 measures, which includes wearing a mask and either being fully vaccinated or participating in UCalgary's rapid testing program & receiving a negative test result.

This option lets you book an appointment with the advisor for your Study Abroad program. Appointments are typically opened a week in advance. If you need to book farther ahead, or can't find an open appointment, please contact your advisor.
