Students and prospective students are encouraged to confer regularly with members of the University community regarding their academic plans and progress. Such consultation provides students with the opportunity to reassess their goals and work towards personal satisfaction as well as academic success while at the University. The Student Academic Advisor co-ordinates the advising function and should be consulted by students seeking academic advice.
Students are provided with the opportunity to be advised by members of faculty who volunteer their services as academic advisors. Advising sessions are arranged during summer and fall registration in order that students may discuss their selection of courses and other academic matters. During the academic year, students are expected to maintain contact with their faculty advisors on matters of academic concern and program planning.
Students who are registered in professional degrees and upper-level students who have declared a major should inform the Chair of the appropriate department, who will provide for academic advising.
Although advice is readily available on request, the responsibility of selecting the appropriate courses for graduation rests ultimately with the student.
Students who are registered as non-degree or as undeclared should maintain ongoing contact with the Student Academic Advisor for information, advice and counselling.
