Academic Advising

Advising is provided through the B.I.E. Advising Office in the Vancouver School of Economics and through the Faculty of Arts Academic Advising Services.

B.I.E. students are expected to develop an individual learning plan to help guide their program of study; the plan will be modified over the course of their degree progress. Staff in the B.I.E. Advising Office are available to assist in the development of these learning plans. The staff of the Faculty of Arts Academic Advising Services are available to offer advice about Faculty of Arts regulations to students in the program. They also evaluate and approve (as appropriate) requests for course changes, withdrawals, academic concessions (for medical, emotional, or other reasons), and letters of permission for study elsewhere.
