While Arts academic advising takes place at several locations on campus, the Arts Undergraduate Office (AUO) is the one-stop academic resource centre for all Arts students.

We can help you with:

  • Course selection
  • Program and plan requirements
  • Academic difficulties
  • Academic record
  • Academic standing

Academic advisor appointments

If you want to make an appointment, there are a few things you should do to prepare:

  • Make sure you know who your advisor is. If you're in a major or are registered at one of the university colleges, contact your advisor directly.
  • Provide the following pieces of information:
    • University Waterloo student ID number
    • Reason for appointment request (e.g., grades, course selection, program requirements)
    • Suggestions of times you would be available for appointments (appointments are available Monday - Friday during business hours only)

Due to the number of appointment requests that the AUO receives, we do not schedule appointments by email. You must call or drop by the office to schedule your appointment. NEW: You may now also request an appointment with an AUO advisor via our webform.
