Academic Advising

Attending university can be one of the most anticipated events in your life, but it can also be daunting. The Academic Advising staff help you through the system whether you are a Canadian or an international student.

On-campus course planning workshops

We offer workshops to new Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science students to help with course planning. Sessions are on campus between June 15 and July 15.

Each session provides an overview of general requirements for the degree. You will leave knowing what courses to take for the fall and winter semesters. All new first-year arts and science students must attend before a walk-in session with an academic advisor.

For more information, see High School Students.
