Academic supports

Academic advisers are an invaluable resource. They can:

  • help you understand general and individual program requirements
  • adjust course load
  • direct you towards many of the learning resources available as a UVic student

Program planning worksheets

Use a program planning worksheet to help plan your courses for your degree. Note that these worksheets are for planning purposes only and don’t replace your Curriculum, Advising and Program Planning (CAPP) report once you’ve declared your program.

If you need support with program planning, please contact your undergraduate adviser.
