Advising Services

Arts OASIS is providing online and in-person advising by appointment ONLY. Kindly use one means of communication only (email or virtual drop-in) to help us avoid duplicating work. Sending duplicate email will not result in a quicker response time.

Our Mission

The mission of the Faculty of Arts Office of Advising and Student Information Services (OASIS) is to ensure the integrity and coherence of the Arts undergraduate degree. We provide advice and support to our students regarding their academic trajectory, from entry to graduation. We do so valuing principles of fairness, accessibility, respect, engagement, confidentiality and collaboration with key stakeholders.

Arts OASIS - Book an advising appointment or email us

We offer various types of advising services (during our regular office hours, Montreal time). Online advising appointments are booked using your McGill email account and are held through MS Teams (works on mobile, desktop, or through a browser). If at the time you book your appointment you do not use your McGill email - or if you have not entered it correctly - you will not receive a confirmation email with the link to the appointment. Please allow the calendar a moment to load the appointments. Appointments are released daily or weekly, they are not released for the whole monthBefore your appointment, ensure that you are properly setup to join the meeting. If you need to cancel your appointment, do so right away so that it can be given to another student. Alternatively, you can send us an email using our webform.

NEW: If you are booking an appointment for Graduation Verification, please note that this can also be done via our new Graduation Verification webform.
