Advising for Winter 2024

Note: Minerva course caps cannot be lifted except for required courses only for final-year final-semester Sociology students (Major, Minor, Honours, or graduate) who need a specific class to be able to graduate on time. (“Reserve closed” means the cap has been reached for your particular program). Emailing advisors for permission to register in a class, under all other circumstances, is pointless.

It is not advisable to email multiple advisors simultaneously. Instead, pick one advisor and mail him/her.

Course checklists for all programs are available under Forms and Documents. These should be filled out before speaking to an advisor about academic progress and being on track for graduation.

Arts OASIS (Office of Advising and Student Information Services):

The Arts OASIS website provides Arts students with general academic information and advice about issues such as faculty and degree requirements, registration issues, inter-faculty transfer, study away, academic standing, or graduation. In addition to advising students about such issues, either by appointment or on a daily drop-in basis, the Arts OASIS Faculty advisers offer a number of information sessions every term, such as degree planning workshops, study away workshops, and freshman information sessions. For more information, please visit the Arts OASIS website.
