Need help mapping out which classes to take for your program or what to major in? The Student Success Centre is here to ensure your academic success. Prospective or current students can email their questions to academic.advising@uregina.ca. 

Current Students can also join a free drop-in academic counselling zoom session!

Zoom Drop-Ins

Zoom drop-in advising is available Monday – Friday, 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. & 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. (excluding stat holidays).

You will be admitted to a waiting room and given access to speak to the advisor on an individual and confidential basis in the order you were admitted to the waiting room (length of wait depends on number of people ahead of you).  If you join during the scheduled times, you will be seen - even if it is later than the scheduled end time of the session.  You will be advised in the Zoom chat if there is an exception to this.

  • Morning Zoom Room (M-F 10:00 am-11:30 am): Access the Zoom room with meeting ID 986 0401 4146.
