Academic Advising

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.
     

During the spring/summer term, students can contact Academic Advising by emailing their questions to advising@nipissingu.ca for on campus students and distanceadvising@nipissingu.ca for students in our distance programs and an advisor will respond to you via email. Or students may use one of our drop-in sessions (in person or online).
