First‑Year Advising


Helping you navigate your first year of university

First Year Advising provides registration advice and transition support for you over the summer and throughout your first year at Dalhousie. Our team of advisors and student success coaches can assist you with course selection, registration, and making a successful transition to university life. We're happy to advise you over the phone, by email, or in person.

Our team can help you with questions such as:

  • What classes should I be taking?
  • What happens if I drop a course?
  • I have a scheduling conflict—how do I fix it?
  • Can I change programs?
  • I'm feeling overwhelmed with all my work—what should I do?
  • How do I get the most out of my university experience?

NEW STUDENT REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN.
