Academic advising is essential to your success. Whether you are interested in discussing your academic goals, checking to ensure you are on track to graduation, exploring ways to add value to your degree, or interested in exploring other program options, your Faculty Advisor and/or Student Central Professionals are here to help you realize your educational goals. There are so many options and ways we can support you!
NOTE: Before meeting with a Student Central Professional, ensure you contact your Faculty Advisor (if applicable).
Depending on the courses in which you are enrolled, they may have midterm exams and/or final exams. As a student, it is your responsibility to ensure you are aware if you have an exam, the location, date and time of the exam as well as the rules that govern the exam process. For most programs, final exams are normally conducted twice during the Fall/Winter term during a December exam period and an April exam period. You must remain available for your exams and ensure any travel plans do not conflict with the exam dates and periods including the exam contingency dates.
