Academic advising

Faculty of Education advisers are here for one reason only: to assist our students, both future and current, in their educational journeys.

Whether it’s a question about prerequisites, course planning and programs, or advice on academic difficulty, we urge you to take advantage of the services our knowledgeable staff offers.


  • Be sure to read about your program of choice before speaking with an adviser.
  • Out-of-town students are encouraged to call ahead to book an appointment.
