Academic Advising

advising you where you are

The health, safety and well-being of our community members is very important to us. Due to the current situation with COVID-19, we are offering undergraduate advising where you are, via email or Zoom.

Before you request advising

Please check the following links. You will find clear and helpful answers to many questions, 24 hours a day, seven days a week:

If your question is not answered in the above locations, please follow the steps below for:


How to request email advising

Send an email from your mail.utoronto.ca U of T email account to utm.anthro@utoronto.ca with the following information:

  1. Your first and last name
  2. Your student number
  3. The reasons for your advising request (what information you are seeking)

The Undergraduate Advisor will reply to your email, so please check your mail.utoronto.ca account regularly. If you need further information you can request a Zoom advising appointment.


Virtual drop-in hours

In lieu of in-person drop-in hours, we have dedicated drop-in hours to respond to your questions via email. Send your question from your @mail.utoronto.ca account to utm.anthro@utoronto.ca, during the published drop-in hours (see calendar below) and you will be guaranteed that a reply will be sent from the UTM Anthropology Undergraduate Advisor during that day’s drop-in hours.

Should extenuating circumstances* prevail and an immediate reply is not possible during the drop-in period, then you will be notified as to when a reply will be sent during the next 24 hrs. Please note that these drop-in inquiries are meant to be used for a quick reply to a specific question. If a longer discussion is necessary, we recommend that you book an advising zoom appointment (see instructions below).

*Examples of extenuating circumstances include a higher than normal volume of inquiries or your question is received at 11:59 am and the drop-in hours end at 12 noon, to name a few.

IMPORTANT information for Zoom advising appointments:

  • No reminder email will be sent.
  • Students who are more than 10 minutes late for their Zoom appointment will forfeit their appointment time.
