Expert advice at our Student Success Centres

Our advisors do more than support you with your academic planning—they can help you reach your educational, career, and life goals. If you are unsure, here is our guide to where to go for advising depending on your question, student status, and faculty. 

During peak advising times (September, January, and March), students can drop by and see an advisor at our Student Success Centres without an appointment. Contact us to learn more.
