Academic Advising

Academic Services
Academic Advisors help ensure that you have an academic plan
Let us help you realize your academic goals!

Undergraduate students who wish to plan their programs or who need advice on any academic matter should consult an Academic Advisor.

This may include, but is not limited to: 

  • planning for degree programs,
  •  choosing courses, 
  • clarifying academic procedures or regulations,
  • determining academic standing, 
  • experiencing academic difficulty, 
  • utilizing college advanced standing or university transfer credits,
  • requesting a course overload, 
  • obtaining a letter of permission to take courses from another university (on-campus or through distance education), 
  • planning around extended medical absences,
  • planning program/courses for an international exchange, 
  • planning for a second degree, 
  • waiving of program requirements/academic regulations through academic appeal/petition.
If you have questions during the year, please make an appointment to see an Academic Advisor or feel free to send us an Ask an Advisor email. Drop In Hours are also available.  In addition, Muskoka Advising appointments are available throughout the year. 


Please note that students in all programs are also encouraged to consult with faculty members concerning course selections, particularly as it relates to planning for graduate studies.

Students are responsible for ensuring that the courses in which they register meet the degree requirements of their programs.
