Advising Support

Students are responsible for seeking guidance from a responsible university officer if they are in any doubt regarding information in this Calendar. Academic Advisors are available in the Office of the Registrar to offer support and guidance for all students seeking clarification on information listed in this Calendar. Faculty advisors or undergraduate assistants in each academic department can offer program-specific support. Students with questions or concerns about course content, tests or assignments within the term should first work directly with the relevant teaching assistant or instructor. If the outcome is unsatisfactory, they should speak with the department’s discipline representative and if necessary after that, with the chair of the department in which the course is offered. If there are questions or concerns around a university rule (such as late course withdrawal, deferral of a final exam, suspensions) or about fees or refunds, students should contact the Office of the Registrar.
