How to Connect with an Academic Advisor

The Advising team is committed to providing you support and service during this public health emergency.

Students in all of Nipissing's undergraduate programs will be able to sign up to chat live with an advisor using their Nipissing student email addresses and our virtual sign in sheet (found here).

Chats will take place in Microsoft Teams and students can find instructions here.

The sign up will open each weekday at 9:00 a.m., and we will begin inviting students to chat starting at 9:30 a.m. The sign up will close when it appears we are full for the day, however we do encourage students to try again the following morning. We anticipate the list may fill quickly in the first few days of September, but that the list will remain open longer as days pass and we work through the volume.

This waiting list service allows students to follow their progress in line, and notifies students via text and email when an advisor is preparing their file. We're very excited to launch this new initiative as an additional way to support students this fall!  

For those who prefer email, distance students can reach us by email at and our on-campus students at We will endeavour to respond as quickly as possible and appreciate your patience as there may be a delay.
