When should I meet with an academic advisor?

We suggest that you take the initiative to meet with an advisor at least once a year, and to seek advising when it is needed - whether you are struggling academically or not. Contact an academic advisor any time you have questions or concerns about academic matters. Some issues are easily resolved via e-mail while others may require a discussion in person. Remember, advisors will be very busy during peak (registration) periods so plan ahead and book an appointment early!

Our advising appointments are being conducted through MS Teams. This platform is used throughout the university among staff, faculty and students and is secure.

If you haven't already, you can go ahead and sign up for MS Teams (see link below) using your MTA email. If you experience any difficulty in setting up an account, you can contact helpdesk@mta.ca and they will be able to assist you.


Your advisor will connect with you on Teams at the time of our appointment.

  • Bachelor of Commerce and Bachelor of Science students will meet with Sarah Cormier
  • Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Fine Arts, and Bachelor of Music students will meet with Stephanie Richard

Students with a declared major/ minor are strongly advised to consult with a program advisor  prior to seeing an academic advisor.
