Advising & Registrarial Services

The Academic Advising & Registrar's Office (AARO) at University College is your reliable first stop for any information or advice you may need as a UC student during your studies at the University of Toronto. We provide academic, financial, and general advising to all UC students.

Our academic advisors are committed to helping students make choices that will lead to their academic success. An academic advisor can assist you with:

  • Reviewing academic progress and standing;
  • Addressing issues that affect your academic performance;
  • Establishing goals and planning for the future;
  • Exploring program options; 
  • Selecting appropriate classes and electives;
  • Understanding academic rules and regulations; and
  • Providing information on additional support services.

Advisors in the Academic Advising & Registrar's Office meet one-on-one with students for scheduled advising appointments in person, via Microsoft Teams, or via phone. To book an appointment with an advisor, please visit or phone our office during business hours and speak with a Front Line Advisor. Drop-in express advising services are also available (see below).

Front Line Advising

Front line advisors are available to assist you with many of your academic questions. Typically, your questions can be answered at the front desk without having to initiate an academic advising appointment. You can also speak with a front line advisor by calling the Academic Advising & Registrar's Office at 416-978-3170. 

In the event that your circumstance cannot be resolved by a front line advisor, we will book you an appointment or offer you an opportunity to join a drop-in advising session. 

Drop-In Advising

Virtual drop-ins are an opportunity for students to consult with an academic advisor one-on-one. Please note that drop-in sessions are considered “express” appointments aimed at helping with straightforward inquiries and requests.

Academic advisors in our office will be available to meet with students for a one-on-one confidential virtual drop-in advising during the following weekly times:

Wednesdays: 1:30 PM –3:30 PM (EST)
Thursdays: 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM (EST)*

Extended drop-in sessions will be offered during peak periods (start of term, end of term, etc.) Please check back during these times for the extended drop-in advising schedule. 

February 2023 Extended Drop-In Advising Schedule:

Friday, February 17: 10:00am – 12:00pm
Monday, February 21: 10:00am – 12:00pm

Drop-in sessions are designed to be shorter in nature and will work on a first come first served basis. Please complete the UC Virtual Drop-in Advising Form to receive the latest drop-in advising schedule, further instructions, and the Zoom link to join the drop-in advising queue.  

Scheduled Appointments

Scheduled appointments in the Academic Advising & Registrar's Office can be made by calling the office at 416-978-3170 or visiting the office in person. These appointments are scheduled for 30 minutes, and are offered in person, via MS Teams, or via phone.
