Although you are responsible for your own registration and for ensuring you meet graduation requirements, Academic advisors will provide advice and assistance throughout your program.
They’ll help you plan your program so that you have a balanced workload, graduate on time, and meet the requirements of chosen professional designations. They can help you sort out course conflicts. And if you encounter academic or personal difficulties, they can provide advice and referrals.
Please drop by and meet our great advising team:
Drop in advising hours: Monday-Friday 2:30pm-5:30pm
Office hours: Monday–Friday: 10:00am-6:00pm
A degree audit report shows your progress toward graduation requirements. You can request a degree audit from our office. To protect confidentiality, photo ID is required.
On occasion, a student may have acquired the necessary background for an advanced course through prior work experience and the instructor may be willing to waive the pre-requisite. If you are in this situation, before you speak with the instructor, the first thing to do is see an advisor.
Similarly, there is provision to appeal final grades, should you feel that you have been assessed unfairly. Again, begin this process by seeing your academic advisor.
Sometimes illness or a family emergency make it impossible to meet a deadline or write a scheduled exam. First, speak to your instructor. If the situation is more serious and you need to reschedule final exams or even withdraw from your courses, meet with an advisor as soon as possible.
