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.

Declaring your Major

If you have questions about any of the four majors or need more information before making your decision, please contact the appropriate Faculty Advisor.

If you are ready to declare your major, come to one of Carie's Drop In times between now and the end of W20 semester to complete the paperwork.

Carie's Drop In times for this semester are Wednesdays from 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm and Thursdays from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm.

Learning Services - Library

Our Library's Learning Services offers appointments and support for students looking to improve their skills in time management, effective studying, writing a thesis or major paper or capstone project. The services are free and the feedback you'll receive could make a huge difference.

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. Once you apply to graduate, no news is good news. Once I receive applications to graduate, I will contact you only if I see a problem or require more information from you.
