Advising and Support

We offer academic advising and support services for prospective and current students.

In alignment with the decision by TRU to suspend all face to face on campus classes, the advising office will be providing alternatives to the way we offer student services. These new options will be in place until further notice.

To receive assistance with any academic questions or concerns please contact our advisors through email.

Advisors will be actively answering incoming inquiries during normal operational hours.
