Whichever way you want to go, we can help you get there


We spend a lot of time talking about the many opportunities available to Fine Arts students, so how exactly can you find your way with so many options?

The experience at uLethbridge is woven together with a wide support network of advisors who are there to guide students through academic and personal growth. Academic advisors are there to assist uLethbridge students in selecting courses, exploring academic options, and evaluating interests. This is an ongoing conversation between student and advisor that happens throughout an academic career, as the advisors constantly evaluate a student's goals, options, and passions.

We understand that, as students grow here, their goals may change. Many students change their majors and programs, taking classes across disciplines and faculties.

Be sure to review your program information often and ensure you are on the right track.



Visit us in W660, just off the Atrium on the 6th floor of the University Centre for the Arts.



We hope you are taking care of yourself! Please be advised that Faculty of Fine Arts Academic Advisors are now working remotely. Don’t worry, they will absolutely continue to support you as you plan your education but this does mean a few things for you:

  1. You will only be able to reach an Advisor online.  We are no longer able to take telephone inquiries and there is no in-person advising.
  2. If you need assistance, please contact us! (remember to include your uLethbridge ID number with every inquiry)
  3. Finally, we ask that you please be patient, it may take longer than usual to respond to your requests because we will have limited access to information, but we will respond as quickly as we can. This is always a busy time of year, that has become more hectic because of the rapidly evolving situation with Covid-19.

Talk to an Advisor

We have recently changed to accepting only drop-ins appointments for student advising. Students may come to the office during drop in hours to speak to an advisor, and will be seen on a first come, first serve basis.

If drop-in times do not suit your schedule, or you are unable to make it to campus, email your questions and remember to include your full name, student ID, and current program. Please allow at least two business days for a response.
