Academic Advising

Providing students with the information and guidance they need to succeed in their academic careers.

The Advising Office has moved online

In response to COVID-19, our physical offices in Kenneth Taylor Hall will be closed until further notice. All student advising services are now being offered remotely. We are committed to doing our part to facilitate responsible social distancing in an effort to flatten the curve in Canada.

Connect with an academic advisor

We are no longer holding in-person advising sessions or drop-ins. If you would like to contact an academic advisor with questions, or book an appointment, please click here. After you submit your request our advising team will do their best to connect with you within 48 hours. 

Remember, you must come prepared for all advising conversations. This includes writing your questions ahead of time, doing preliminary research on your program requirements, and review your Advisement Report from Mosaic.
