Connect with an Academic Advisor

For inquiries about programs offered at our Markham Campus, please connect with a Markham Academic Advisor.

Our team of advisors at the Lassonde Student Welcome & Support Centre is committed to providing Lassonde students with the advice you need as students in a professional School. Advising helps you to make informed and thoughtful decisions about your academic pathway as you progress through the Lassonde School of Engineering.
Lassonde Academic Advising Drop-in Advising Schedule:
January 22, 2024 to April 30, 2024
Monday to Thursday: 11:00am to 4:00pm
https://kiosk.ca1.qless.com/kiosk/app/home/19455

Lassonde Academic Advising typically has two or more Academic Advisors supporting students during drop-in, but if the queue reaches capacity, you are welcome to:

– continue to refresh the app in case the queue re-opens again before closing time.
– book a future appointment via the QLess app
– e-mail questions to ask@lassonde.yorku.ca if you matter is not urgent or time sensitive

Join the Drop-in Line

Download the QLess app via your smartphone (Android users, Apple users) and search for “Lassonde”. Our drop-in queue is called “Academic Advising Drop-in”.

You can also join via the virtual kiosk.

Once you have joined the line, you will receive real time text messages to provide you updates. This allows you to wait where you want, how you want.

When it is your turn:

– If selecting telephone, an Academic Advisor will call you when it is your turn.
– If selecting in-person, proceed to the 1st floor lobby of the Bergeron Centre for Engineering Excellence. An Academic Advisor will greet you when it is your turn.
– If selecting virtual, you will get a link to our zoom room. An Academic Advisor will meet with you in a separate breakout room.

During peak periods or in response to unforeseen circumstances, in-person sessions may be facilitated via telephone or Zoom instead.

We appreciate your patience as we work to assist all students in the queue.

We encourage all students to self-assess their progress towards graduation using their Academic Calendar, Program Checklist, Degree Progress Report, and Required Advising Curriculum Updates. If you notice a discrepancy between your Degree Progress Report and these resources, please e-mail ask@lassonde.yorku.ca and our Academic Advising team will respond.

If you are in your final session of study, apply to graduate. To learn more, review the “Preparing to Graduate” section of Required Advising.

I would like to have my Degree Progress Report updated


You can complete the DPR Update Request Form (to view this link, you’ll need to be logged in to my.yorku.ca) if you would like the DPR to be updated to reflect your transfer credits or course credit equivalencies not currently reflected.  An Academic Advisor will review your file and make any necessary adjustments.  Please allow at least 2 weeks from when the form is completed for these changes to be reflected.  If an Advisor has any concerns, they will contact you to discuss.

If you do not have access to the DPR or if after self-assessing your progress to date using your Academic Calendar, Program Checklist, Degree Progress Report, and Required Advising Curriculum Updates you still have questions about your remaining degree requirements, you may Request an Informal Degree Review (to view this link, you’ll need to be logged in to my.yorku.ca).
Prefer e-mail? E-mail us your questions at ask@lassonde.yorku.ca. We check our e-mails every day.

From May to September, a peak advising period for all students, you will experience delays to our e-mail response times.
