Academic Advisors help students plan their educational careers.

Meet one-on-one with an advisor for answers to questions about course or program selection, transfer credit, course withdrawal, program requirements, changing programs, declaring a major or minor, making or updating a program plan, graduation check, or postgrad preparations.

WHICH ADVISOR DO YOU NEED TO SEE?
  1. Select the advisor for the UFV program you have been admitted to, even if you are newly admitted and have not yet taken any classes.
  2. Select "Exploratory" if you are not admitted to a UFV program.
  3. When you find your program category, click the "+" to expand it to book your appointment.
  4. Click the "Book in Abbotsford" or "Book in Chilliwack" (if available) to show advisor appointments.
  5. Check your UFV student email or your registered personal email (exploratory students) for full details including campus and advising office location.

Failure to select the correct program category will cause delays and result in rescheduling.
