Academic Advising

Advising is not required for most students but is available on request. Depending on the student’s academic circumstances (e.g., academic probation, request for academic concession, or other matters), the Faculty reserves the right to make advising mandatory prior to registration.

Academic advising is required for Honours students.

Academic advising is available through the Faculty’s Office of Student Services. Advisors are available to assist undergraduate students in their general academic planning, in interpreting Faculty regulations and course requirements, and in resolving academic problems.
