Online Advising Appointment in January 2022

Book a 30 minute appointment with an International Education Advisor if:

  • I am an international student in 1st or 2nd academic year (with less than 45 credits)
  • I am an international student enrolled in the ELST, ACP or Trades program
  • I have questions about study and work permits

Make sure to select "Advising - International Students" and "Specific Campus" or "Online" as location. Include your KPU email address in the notes section; if you choose "Online", you will receive a separate email with a link to join. 

* Students who arrive more than 15 minutes past the start time of their appointment are considered “no-show” and will have to book a new appointment.

* If you are unable to attend your appointment for any reason, we request that you cancel your appointment as soon as possible through Advisor Connect (below 'Book an Appointment' link) so another student may book the timeslot.
