Academic advisors are available across campus to provide students with academic advising and support. They coach, support and guide students to set and meet educational and career goals.
For students in the Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences and Faculty of Science, Student Success Advisors can help you:
- clarify your education and career goals
- monitor your plan of study
- choose courses that relate to your goals and interests
- address concerns about your studies
- apply strategies for academic success
- identify skill-building opportunities such as co-op or study abroad
- develop an action plan if you are struggling in school
- explore academic options (including academic policies) when faced with a personal/family emergency
- help you determine where to go for additional support.
For students in other faculties, there are faculty-specific advisors available to help.
