We offer both virtual and in-person drop-in advising at all three SFU campuses during the specific advising hours. 10-15 minute drop-in advising is offered on a first-come, first served basis. The wait times will be determined by the number of students in the queue. 

The drop-in queue will be closed once we reach capacity, or 15 minutes prior to the scheduled time, whichever is earlier.

If you want to skip the wait time or if your question is more complex (e.g. application refusals, restoration applications, etc), you may consider the option to book an appointment to meet with an International Student Advisor.

**Please note that the drop-in hours are subject to change, so always check the DROP-IN CALENDAR below for the most up-to-date virtual and in-person drop-in schedule. Please also note that we DO NOT advise on academic-related and permanent residency inquiries.
