How to Connect with an Advisor online

1. Sign up via QLess

  • Indicate your student # where prompted 
  • Select “Telephone Advising” or “Virtual Advising”
  • If virtual, enter your e-mail address so that an Advisor can invite you to an online Zoom room
  • Once you have been summoned for your appointment, please check your spam or junk folder for a zoom invitation

2. When it is your turn, you will receive a text from the QLess app letting you know that you have arrived at the front of the line:

  • An Advisor will contact you via the method you have indicated 
  • If via Zoom, please allow a minute or two for an email with the Zoom link once you have reached the front of the line

If you are attempting to join our queue in QLess during our drop-in hours and notice that the queue is greyed out, this means there are already too many students waiting in line. Refresh your QLess app and try again later.

Informal Degree Review Appointments & the Degree Progress Report

We encourage all students to self-assess their progress towards graduation using their Academic CalendarProgram ChecklistDegree 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, don’t forget to apply to graduate! To learn more, review our Getting Ready to Graduate webinar.

I would like to have my Degree Progress Report updated

You can complete the DPR update request form 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 CalendarProgram ChecklistDegree Progress Report, and Required Advising Curriculum Updates you still have questions about your remaining degree requirements, you may request an informal degree review.


Prefer e-mail? E-mail us your questions at ask@lassonde.yorku.ca. We check our e-mails every day.

During peak periods you will experience delays to our e-mail response times (e.g., 3 business days or more). During peak periods, if your question is urgent, we recommend that you connect with us during our drop-in hours.
