*Drop-in appointments are not guaranteed; there are limited spots each day. Please do not drive long distances without calling first to determine wait times or availabilty.


Booked appointments are normally scheduled a week or more in advance, however, during peak periods there may be a wait time of up to three weeks for a booked appointment.  If your questions are time-sensitive, please e-mail (scibmsac@uwo.ca) or come to drop-in counselling.   

Requesting an appointment does not guarantee you will receive one and so some students will be asked to use other services such as Drop-in Academic Counselling or Department Counselling.
