Academic Advising

Do you have questions about your degree requirements, a specific course, student services on campus or the best way to get into a degree program? If you have any concerns about accessing the courses and services you need, we are here to help. Our advising appointments allow you to chat with an advisor who can lead you in the right direction, answer these questions and more.

Are you a new student? New students have received an offer of admission but have not begun their first term of classes. Please visit our new students webpage to find the information you need for enrolment and next steps.
