Students will meet with international student advisors on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Drop-in advising hours are from Monday to Friday between 1:00 pm and 3:30 pm (except weekends, holidays and college closures). Drop-in advising schedules may change due to international advisor availability. Check the website for updates before you come.

Please note that advising hours are canceled on the following days:

  • December 24th, 2019 to January 1st, 2020 for the Christmas closure.

 

What is drop-in advising?

Drop-in advising is for students who have very specific questions to meet with an international advisor. Students should always refer to the website and do their own research prior to meeting an advisor.

 

When is drop-in advising?

Drop-in advising is available between 1:00 p.m. and 3:30 p.m., Monday to Friday, except holidays and weekends. Drop-in advising schedules may change due to international advisor availability. Check the website for updates before you come.

 

How long is a drop-in session?

Drop-in sessions are usually no more than 15 minutes.

 

How do I prepare for a drop-in session?

Read and understand all related information on the website and the Frequently Asked Questions page, and write down specific questions ahead of time.

 

Can my friends or family come with me?

The space in the International Education office is limited. Your friends and families are welcome to wait in the public area of the College while you are meeting with an international advisor.

 

Will I be guaranteed to see an advisor if I come during drop-in hours?

Students will meet with advisors on a first-come, first-serve basis. Only a limited number of students can be served during the drop-in advising hours, so try to arrive 5 to 10 minutes early.

 

What if I cannot come during the drop-in hours, or have more complicated questions?

You may book a one-on-one appointment with an international advisor if you are unable to come during drop-in advising hours, or have more complicated questions that may take more than 15 minutes.
