We offer both virtual and in-person drop-in advising at all three SFU campuses during the specific advising hours. The drop-in is offered on a first-come, first served basis and the wait times will be determined by the number of students in the queue. If you want to skip the wait time to meet with an International Student Advisor, you may consider the option to book an appointment instead. 

The drop-in queue will be closed 15 minutes prior to the scheduled time and may be closed earlier once it reaches the capacity. 

**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. Also, we DO NOT provide academic advising.
