Academic Advising

Academic advising is available to all undergraduate MCS students in multiple formats. Our department has two Academic Advisors: Laura Ferlito (for Mathematical Sciences and Applied Statistics matters) and Yvette Ye (for Computer Science matters). Before connecting with an academic advisor, consider reviewing the MCS Frequently Asked Questions webpage.


1:1 Advising

If you have a brief inquiry or are unable to book an appointment, you may email your questions to one of our two Academic Advisors:

Academic Advising appointments are available online (via Zoom) or in person (in office DH3012). Visit our MS Bookings page to book an appointment.

To respect our staff’s time, we ask that if you can no longer make the appointment, you cancel through MS Bookings or by emailing the advisor.

Lastly, students may drop in to DH3012 for a quick discussion with an academic advisor. Advisor availability is posted on the door of DH3012.


Group Advising

Online drop-in meetings (via Zoom) are typically before important deadlines, such as course management, program enrolment, and dropping courses. These sessions will be announced through Quercus and on our website.

Town Hall meetings (in-person) typically address popular topics such as program entry and internship opportunities, including PEY. These sessions will be announced through Quercus and on our website.

We are always interested in ways that best serve our students. If you have any suggestions, feel free to contact your academic advisor.


IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT USING ZOOM: We use Zoom for video advising appointments. If you are a first-time UTM user of Zoom, you can visit this page for information on how to authorize/activate your account before your first Zoom advising appointment. In addition, there are helpful I&ITS articles to aid you as a first-time user here.
