Academic Advisor System

Each student is assigned an Advisor, responsible for assisting the student in defining and developing realistic educational goals, in keeping with his/her abilities, skills, interests, and career aspirations. Advisors are also responsible for ensuring the student is aware of university regulations and policies.

The Advisors are full-time employees of the Student Advising Center, which assigns students to individual Advisors. A first meeting is arranged to discuss the student’s interests and career objectives, and to decide on course options. A Registration Form is then completed and signed by both parties, to be submitted to the Office of the Registrar.

Students are encouraged to contact their Advisor at any time during the academic year. However, it is mandatory to meet at least once a semester to discuss course options. Meetings may be arranged during office hours or by appointment. The Student Advising Center is located at the ground floor of the West Block building.
