Advising

An Advising Appointment Can Help With The Following:

  • What courses will satisfy program requirements?
  • We can offer advice on the range of course offerings, program requirements and faculty members in the program.
  • What program options are available?
  • Can you do a double major or a major/minor?
  • Can Atkinson and Glendon courses count?
  • Can you take Specialized Programs?

As regulations change, we can help choose courses that reflect current regulations. The advising appointment is an important window for us to understand how the program and courses are working for you. We will solicit and welcome your feedback on how your courses are going, which ones you like or do not like. This feedback is crucial in guiding us with program improvements.

Sometimes medical or personal problems interfere with academic performance. In an advising appointment, we can often offer advice on petitions and other strategies to help deal with the impact of these circumstances on academic performance.
