Meet Your Advisors
Program Specific Advising
If you have specific questions about your program, consider reaching out to the Undergraduate Program Assistant or Program Coordinator for advice. You must come to your appointment prepared. Please prepare your questions in advance and review and bring with you a copy of your Unofficial Transcript, Degree Progress Report and Program Checklist filled out.
Benefits of an Advising Appointment
We recommend making an advising appointment or speaking with your program coordinator at least once a year. In some programs this is mandatory. Typically you should book one between between March and May.
Guidance when selecting the degree option that is right for you.
Help with course selection so you meet all your program requirements.
Advisors are aware of all the latest program regulations - which change often!
Help minimizing red tape; we promise not to pass you off to another office.
Chance for you to share feedback on courses and program structure.
Personal support and resources for accommodation for those who need it.
Please remember that advising is a shared relationship between you and the advisor. Advisors can explain policies and regulations or offer academic options. However, you must accept final responsibility for the decisions you make regarding your academic program and standing. In the end, the best way for you to succeed and keep your academic options open is to study hard and achieve good grades.
