The Role of an Advisor
Academic Advisors, or Program Specialists, are individuals whose scope of expertise center around the faculty-specific policies and procedures associated with a given (undergraduate-level) credential program. An advisor's services can include, but are not limited to:
- Course selection and sequencing
- (Optimal) Graduation pathway planning
- Conducting final program checks (for those who are registered in their final semester of courses)
- Facilitating requests for: Incompletes (I), Withdrawals with Cause (WC), Final Exam Deferrals, and Final Grade Appeals (where merited)
- Interpreting and clarifying Academic Calendar regulations and providing rationale or advocacy, where necessary
- Identifying success barriers and recommending appropriate solutions/strategies
- Providing referrals during instances of academic or personal difficulty, where possible
|**IMPORTANT: Students are responsible for registering themselves into their own classes via the Bridge during every intended semester of study, until graduation. It is imperative to register into one's courses as early as possible when their individual registration window opens as available seating can fill-up quickly during an active registration period. See this wait-listing page for information on assistance with securing a seat in full/closed Dhillon School of Business courses (not applicable to other faculties).|
