Science Advising is a student's primary source for advising inthe Faculty of Science. Staff and academic advisors are there to assist undergraduate students in their general academic planning, in interpreting faculty regulations and course requirements, and in resolving academic and personal problems.
Academic advising related to the student's specialized area of study can be obtained from advisors in the department or program that offers the specialization.
Academic and personal assistance is also available at Current Students.
Email is the preferred means for the Faculty of Science administration and faculty members to communicate important messages to students. It is the responsibility of all science students to ensure that their current email address is accurately recorded on the Student Service Centre and to read email sent to that account on a regular basis. Free email accounts are available for all UBC students, but any email account may be registered through the SSC.
