Student Learning Commons: Book a consultation

Online and in-person consultations available 

 Steps to book a consultation 

 Select a schedule

Choose Burnaby or Surrey 

  Choose how you want to meet 

Select online or in-person (note: some times are online-only)

 Hot tip: You can adjust appointments to book up to 60 minutes. We recommend booking 60 minutes to allow enough time to address your priority issues (it's okay if you don't use the whole time!). 

 Consultations by appointment 

Once you have set up your account, you can log in to see available consultation times, and book the time and way of meeting that works best for you.

Consultation times

Appointment times change every semester and regularly include evening and weekend availability. Log into WCOnline and check Burnaby and Surrey schedules to see full availability. 

Looking for a drop-in time? Unbooked appointment times are available for same-day drop-in appointments.

 Hot tip: We recommend booking a full hour.

Preparing for your appointment

 Hot tips: 

  • You can go into the virtual consultation space before your consultation starts to make sure you are familiar with the way WCO works. This step will help you avoid tech delays during your booked consultation time.

Accessing your virtual appointment

Virtual Consultations are hosted through WCOnline (the same space where you book SLC consultations).

Once you book a consultation, you will receive an appointment confirmation email, which will include more information about how to access your online consultation.

In order to access your consultation, you will need to: 

  1. Log back into WCOnline
  2. Click on your appointment time.
  3. Then click on "Start or Join Online Consultation"

You will then be taken into a virtual room where you can meet your consultant.
