Peak Periods:
During peak advising times our office provides 'same day calls' with advisors.  These calls allow us to serve as many students as possible and do not require an appointment.  Call our office to be put on our call-back list and an advisor will call you back Monday-Friday from 9:00am-7:00pm ADT (until 6pm on Fridays).

To connect with an advisor this way, please call us at 902-494-3077 or 1-866-359-4709, be ready with your B00#, and we will add you to our call-back list to receive a call from an advisor the same day.   

Please let us know if a phone call is not possible for you and we can do our best to arrange another way to connect; you may e-mail us:, or book an appointment online.
