How can an academic advisor help me?

An academic advisor can assist you with many parts of your academic journey including:

  • program planning by identifying options and opportunities to meet your academic and career goals
  • identifying barriers to your success, recommending strategies and giving referrals to other resources or special services
  • educating about university academic policies, procedures and requirements and interpreting and providing rationale or advocacy when necessary

How can I make the most of academic advising?

One of the best parts of university is that you get to enroll in classes that interest you, so take the time to identify courses that resonate with you personally before seeing an advisor. You can also follow the steps below to ensure you're getting the most out of your sessions. It is your responsibility to take ownership of course selections, academic decisions and completion of graduation requirements, but academic advisors are here to help along the way.

1. PREPARE:  Before you meet with an advisor make sure you are organized so you can get the most out of your advising session.  Check out our FAQs to see if you can find the answer to your question(s) and write down your remaining question(s).  Ensure your tuition is paid so you can register; consult important dates and deadlines.  Review your Program Planning Guide (PPG) to determine which courses you have completed and which ones you still require and bring a copy to the advising session. Review the Timetable, or Courses section of the Academic Calendar and determine prerequisites, corequisites and Liberal Education requirements for your course selections. You should also think about your academic and career goals so you can communicate those with your advisor and write down any questions so you don't forget to ask them.

2. ENGAGE: During your advising consultation, your academic advisor can confirm if your choices are appropriate for your program and assist with unforeseeable challenges that might arise. Be sure to inform the academic advisor of critical information, ask questions to help you gather knowledge to make decisions and seek clarification if you don't understand something. Take notes on your session so you can refer back to them.

3. ACT:  After your advising session, be sure to consult any referred resources, follow up on decisions and implement actions to be taken.
