Academic Advising Services

Starting July 6, 2020, the Advising Office is moving to booked phone and Zoom appointments, and will continue virtual drop-in appointments with our QLESS system on Fridays. Our services will be provided 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM Monday–Thursday and 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM on Fridays. To book an appointment with an advisor, kindly send an email to laps@yorku.ca and indicate whether you prefer communicating with us via phone or Zoom. If there is a specific advisor you would like to speak to, please include their name.

During COVID-19 operations, many departments have moved to a single email for booking. If you are a student in any of the following departments below and you require assistance, please email them directly.

For all other programs not listed, please connect with our team by emailing laps@yorku.ca.
