Our Mission

The mission of the Faculty of Arts Office of Advising and Student Information Services (OASIS) is to ensure the integrity and coherence of the Arts undergraduate degree, and to provide advice and support to our students regarding their academic trajectory, from entry to graduation. We do so by valuing principles of fairness, accessibility, respect, engagement, confidentiality and collaboration with key stakeholders.

Advising Syllabus 

There are various types of academic advising resources at McGill to help you stay on track & succeed academically while progressing through your Arts degree. Depending on the type of information/support you are seeking, refer to the blocks above for details and refer to the University's Academic Advising Mission.

It is equally important to be aware of the Advisor & Advisee Responsibilities detailed in the Advising Syllabus.

Note to Parents/Guardians

Per Québec privacy laws (details here) and given our advising mandate to students - in support of building a student's independence and resiliency - the Arts OASIS will only interact with the student themselves when advising and with regard to their McGill record.
