It is strongly recommended that students with a declared major/ minor seek academic advising from a program advisor.

Academic advising is:

  • Developing education plans for achieving your goals
  • Receiving advice on academic matters
  • Taking ownership of your education
  • Making effective and informed decisions concerning your degree
  • Connecting university experiences to personal, academic, and career goals
  • Collaboration and partnership 

The academic advisor can:

  • Assist with course selection and registration
  • Help interpret academic policies and procedures
  • Help you consider options for major and minor programs
  • Clarify degree and program requirements
  • Assist with program planning and  tracking progress towards graduation
  • Provide guidance in formulating and realizing academic goals
  • Help you understand the consequences of academic decisions
  • Respond to concerns related to academic performance and academic standing
  • Answer your questions on academic matters and regulations
  • Highlight important dates and deadlines
  • Make referrals to appropriate resources

Please remember that advising is a shared responsibility between the advisor and the student. Students are ultimately responsible for their education and decisions.
