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 resolution strategies
- Providing referrals during instances of academic or personal difficulty, where possible
Each uLethbridge faculty and campus will have their own dedicated team of advisors who are explicitly trained on the program requirements belonging to their specific area.
