We're here to help you choose your program and courses! Academic advice is available from academic unit advisors in a department or school and from the Academic Advising Centre.

1. Go to your MyPage
2. Click on the “Grades and Records” Tab

You can also visit the Advising Centre, and get help and guidance from one of the advisors there.

Academic Advising Centre
Connect with the Academic Advising Centre (AAC) throughout your degree. They can:
- Help you select your courses
- Help you explore your degree options
- Help you plan for your degree completion and help you interpret your CAPP report
- Explain University policies, regulations, and degree and program requirements
- Help you with academic concerns and provide appropriate referrals
- Discuss the flexibility available in a degree (adding a second Major or a Minor, Concentration or Option)
Transfer students can meet with an Academic Adviser to discuss academic plans, and review transfer credits to help you understand how they apply to your chosen degree.
The Academic Calendar contains information on programs, courses and academic regulations. Contact an Adviser if you need referrals or support in taking next steps or have questions about how to interpret a policy in the Academic Calendar. Unexpected life circumstances may interfere with academic success. You do not have to face difficulties on your own.
