Program Directors & Cohort Advisors can help you by:

  • guiding your course selections to make sure you meet the requirements of your program;
  • offering support and referrals in cases of academic or personal difficulty.

For information about how your faculty advisors, professors, and peer advisors can help, visit McGill's Advising Website.

There are many resources to help answer questions before you reach out to an advisor. Please consult the Where to go? guide to make sure an advisor is the appropriate contact to get your questions answered.
