Advising Services

 Arts OASIS is currently working remotely and providing advising services online.
Please use one means of communication only (email or virtual drop-in) to help us avoid duplicating work. Sending duplicate correspondence 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 remote 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). Depending on the service, appointments can be booked as early as 4 days to 15 minutes in advance - only approximately one week of services will appear (not a monthly schedule). Please allow the calendar a moment to load the appointments. New dates/times will be added as advisors become available (or if there are cancellations) so check-back regularly for newly added options. Before your appointment, be sure to have properly setup what is required 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.

Book an advising appointment with an Arts Local Wellness Adviser (LWA)

Your Local Wellness Advisors are mental health professionals in the Faculty of Arts. Learn about workshops, drop-in events, appointments and more.

Submit a Question to an ASAP

An ASAP is a peer advisor who is part of our Arts Student Advising Program (ASAP).

To send them a message: you will have to join a team called "Arts Student Advising Program (ASAP)_Group" (on Microsoft Teams) using a teams code (a code will be provided to you) - instructions found here.

The ASAPs are available on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays - from 10 AM to 4 PM (Montreal time) as of Thursday, May 20, 2021.
