Advising

Academic advising is available at the University College Registrar's Office and through individual academic departments. The Registrar's Office provides information related to degree requirements, univeristy rules and regulations, interpretation of the Academic Calendar and personal or academic concerns that influence academic performance. 

Departmental advisors offer detailed information on their respective programs (specialists, majors and minors) and individual courses or instructor conduct. 

A few reasons to meet with an academic advisor: 

  • Assistance in mapping your academic direction
  • Understanding degree requirements
  • Degree checking for students preparing to graduate
  • Petitions for special consideration
  • Financial advising (Finances/OSAP & Government Loans/Bursaries)
  • Personal advising and support services (Illness/Personal Difficulties)
