Please check the most-up-to-date York University COVID-19 response information at: coronavirus.info.yorku.ca/
In light of the national effort to minimise the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we have amended our current advising practice to accommodate only online advising. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to contact us. We will respond to you as soon as we are able to do so. If you would like to book an online advising appointment, please contact us at email@example.com.
You can also reach an Academic Advisor for ‘drop-in’ advising via our chat function until 9PM. The chat connection may be found at the bottom of this page, below. PLEASE NOTE that “chat” advising will only be able to answer general questions and not specific course information. Those enquiries should be made of your course instructor or via one of our email addresses above.
If you are feeling distressed, please directly contact our York University’s counselling service at https://counselling.students.yorku.ca/ or call Good2Talk, a free, confidential service designed specifically for higher education students at 1-866-925-5454.
Science Academic Services (SAS) is the undergraduate advising office for all Science students at York. The SAS team understands the post-secondary environment and is dedicated to assisting you along your academic journey. Our team provides a confidential and secure environment for students the SAS team understands the post-secondary if SAS does not have the answer they will be able to point you in the right direction.
Some common concerns include:
- Can I choose a particular course to meet my degree requirements?
- What happens if I repeat a course?
- I didn’t drop a course before the drop-date – what can I do now?
But academic advising is more than this. What about:
- I find I’m not much interested in the program I chose – what can I do?
- I’m not managing the workload very well – what can I do?
- My interests are very diverse. How can I take a diverse set of courses?
If you are a new student, you will receive face-to-face advising shortly after you decide to come to Science@York. You’ll also find a lot of the information you need on these pages.
If you are a current student we hope you’ll browse or search – or contact SAS!
