Academic Advising

Please note:  The Academic Advising Centre will be unavailable on Friday, June 23 due to staff professional development. Advising appointments including CAPPY Hour in the Library will not be offered. If you have an enquiry during this time, please email advising@uvic.ca-

Reminder: Declare your program through your My Page account once you have completed at least eight graded courses (12.0 units). Getting your request in as soon as you are eligible will let you access your degree evaluation (CAPP report) and help you plan your schedule before registration begins in June.

Take time to plan your degree. Make decisions that fit you and your goals. Connect with an Academic Adviser when you have specific questions, as well as when you need someone to talk to about your options. Depending on your question, you may want to meet with an Academic Adviser in the Academic Advising Centre (AAC) for Humanities, Science and Social Sciences or a faculty member in your academic program who has responsibility for Academic Unit Advising (AUA).
