Consulting a Program/Academic Advisor

Advisors provide guidance to students and potential students, assisting them in making informed academic choices. The advising process is there to help you obtain the best education possible. The advising component is one of partnership, with shared responsibilities and planning your course of studies properly is key to achieving success.

Some of the services offered by advisors include:

  • General guidance related to your field of interest
  • Providing information about rules, regulations and requirements governing specific programs and courses
  • Guiding your course selections to make sure you meet the requirements of your program
  • Offering guidance in planning your credit load and upcoming deadlines
  • Helping you manage your academic situation during periods of personal, financial or medical difficulty
  • Evaluation of requests for approval of inter-university transfer credits
  • Revision of International Student Study Plans
  • Serve as a direct link to other University resources

Booking an Appointment with an Advisor

After you have consulted our website, for more complex questions about program or course requirements, scheduling or academic regulations or any of the items listed above, please contact Robert Guirguis to book an appointment.

Your request will be answered within 3 – 5 business days (during non-peak periods).

While advisors and staff can provide guidance, it remains your responsibility to ensure:

  • The completeness and accuracy of your course selection and registration
  • Compliance with the program and course requirements
  • Observance of the regulations and deadlines
