Important Notice

For the latest information and updates about McMaster's response to COVID-19 (coronavirus) please visit the McMaster COVID-19 site.

Academic Advising appointments between January 2 – 14 are reserved for Winter enrolment and course questions only.

Book an Academic Appointment on OSCARplus using these steps:

  • Log into OSCARplus with your MacID and password
  • Click “Appointments” on the left-hand side
  • Select “Business Appointments”
  • Click “Commerce Academic Appointments”
  • Select a date and time

Be considerate of your fellow students. If you’re unable to make an appointment, cancel it so that other students can use the timeslot to meet with an Advisor. Make cancellations in OSCARplus up to 24 hours in advance, or by phone at 905-525-9140 ext. 24433 for same-day cancellations.

Please note, Academic Advisors are unable to enroll you in a closed section of a course. Monitor MOSAIC and if your preferred course opens up then try to enroll in it at that time. Students often make changes to their schedules until the end of the Add/Drop period, so check MOSAIC often. Unfortunately, there are usually no waitlists and instructors cannot give seat authorizations.

If you receive a message that you do not meet the “Reserved Capacity” for a course, this means that there are currently no seats available for students in your category (i.e. Business students). Please try enrolling in a different section of the course if one is available or wait until the Reserved Seat Capacity is released.

As always, reach out to with any questions.
