Virtual Advising for Prospective High School Students

As a result of COVID-19, all prospective student advising will be offered online at this time. No matter what questions you have about the U of A, admissions, and university life, we remain committed to supporting you in getting those questions answered.

General Advising

Chat with an advisor and learn about program options, admission requirements, the application process, and more. General virtual advising is offered Monday through Friday during business hours.

Please note we are unable to provide virtual advising sessions for post-secondary transfer students or current U of A students. Visit the Transfer Students webpage or contact your faculty for more information. We will unfortunately cancel your appointment if you are a transfer student or current U of A student.
