Please note: Drop-ins are on a First-come, first-served basis and will increase from 15 min to 20 min each.
Students will see whichever Disability Consultant is available at that time. We will make every effort to link students with their primary consultant for the drop-in appointment but please note that there is no guarantee.
Please remember that drop in appointments will be scheduled for no longer than 20 minutes. As such, students should book formal appointments if they need to discuss something at length. Please speak to your consultant or the front line staff if you are unsure about whether you need to book an hour-long appointment or whether a drop in session will suffice.
On alternating Tuesdays, we have a Learning Strategist on-site to discuss strategies for success and answer questions on an extensive list of topics including successful study habits, assessing your study skills, overcoming academic difficulties, time management, as well as degree and program planning. To book an appointment contact the front desk.
On alternating Tuesdays, we have a Career Advisor on-site to support students and answer questions on a variety of career and employment topics such as skills assessments, making connections for employment, what to do with your Degree, resumes, cover letters, interview skills, succeeding in the workplace, job search support, job shadow programs, etc. To book an appointment contact the front desk.
