Changes to Meeting with Program Counsellor

Please be advised of the following changes to meeting with Program Counsellors:

We will continue to respond to email but have also worked on a way for you to book an audio or video appointment for those who prefer a meeting. As students, you have access to Microsoft Teams through your Gryph Mail by clicking on the icon beside Outlook in the top left of your mailbox. The icon is a square made up of nine dots. We will use this platform to meet.   

Program Counselling Operations 2nd Update (March 17th)

Effective March 17th, all U of G employees have been asked to work from home. This means that the OAC Program Counselling Office will be adjusting the way we operate to comply with the recommendations for social distancing and limiting the spread of illness.

Please Note: We will only be available via e-mail until further notice. We do not have access to student files and so there may be limitations to what we can assist with, but we will work closely with you to determine your needs.

Program Counselling Operations Update

At this time, the OAC Program Counselling Office is only accepting email and phone inquiries. Your program counsellor will be available to support you during regular office hours, but the office doors will be closed. Please contact x54800 to book a phone appointment. 

COVID-19 Update - Classes cancelled Mar. 16-20; Courses to resume Mar. 23 in alternative format

Below is an excerpt from the "COVID-19 Update from the President – March 13, 2020":

The University of Guelph continues to closely monitor the development of the COVID-19 pandemic. We know that members of the U of G community are concerned, and I want to assure everyone that we take this situation very seriously and are doing everything we can to ensure the health and safety of our campus community.

Shorter Drop in Hours on Thursday, March 12

I must attend an important meeting about pandemic planning on Thursday, so I need to reduce my drop in hours to 1pm-1:50pm. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. 

Fall Semester Course Selection

Course selection for the Fall semester will begin in June. The class schedule will be posted in June.

If you have questions about course selection, I recommend you meet with me before you leave campus. You are welcome to come to a drop in time to have a discussion or you can talk to Ellen about an appointment. Drop in times are:

Mondays:  12:00 pm to 2:00 pm

Tuesdays: 10:00 am to 12:00 pm

Thursdays: 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm

Fridays: 11:30 am to 12:00 pm

Summer Semester Course Selection

Summer course selection will begin March 2nd. Selection windows will open based on the number of credits you’ve completed and are currently enrolled in.

Selection will remain open until the last day to add and the exam schedule will be posted April 30th, 2020.

Please be sure to read the information sent by the Registrar’s Office and review the course selection website on WebAdvisor

If you’d like to meet with Melinda before you leave campus, please use a drop in time:

Office Closure & My Availability

Our office needs to close for an important meeting the morning of Thursday, February 20th, 2020. It will open at 1pm and close at 3pm. 

Please also note Melinda is out of the office and not on emails from the afternoon of the 19th to the morning of the 24th. Drop in hours are cancelled February 20th and 21st. Have a great break!

Drop in Hours Shortened for Thursday

Due to a conflict with a meeting, I am only available for drop in from 1pm-1:20pm this Thursday, February 13th. I apologize for any inconvenience. 

Applying to Graduate

For those of you who are going to complete your courses in April, you need to apply to graduate by February 14th, 2020 to avoid a late penalty. You would have already received an email from the Registrar’s Office with instructions if you will complete 20.00 credits this semester. Please refer to the information on the graduation webpage for more information about the process (under "Current Students", select "Graduation" on the right hand side).
