Academic Advising

What’s the difference between a major and a minor? Which courses should you take and when? How can you make sure you fulfill your degree requirements? Interested in studying abroad?

Have questions? We have answers.

Your academic advisor can help you understand what’s required of you academically, and help you get the most from your university education. Visit your academic advisor once a year to make sure you’re on track and making informed decisions about your education and your future. Download the BComm Advising Syllabus 2017-2018.
