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.

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

Missed Exam or Final Assignment

If you have missed a final exam or a final assignment, please contact the Program Counselling Office (Johnston Hall, 133A or ext. 54800) to discuss your options. You have five working days after the missed exam or final assignment deadline to submit a request for a deferred privilege, so please contact the office as soon as you are able. If you are unable to contact the office due to extreme circumstances, please take care of yourself first and then contact the office. 

F19 Drop In Hours

Carie's weekly drop-in hours will be Wednesday from 1:00pm to 2:30pm and Thursday from 11:00am to 12:00pm.

Our OPEN hours are not the same thing as Carie's drop in hours. Open hours are the hours within which appointments can be booked and when Michelle is at the desk to answer quick questions.

If the drop in times don't work for you and you would like to set up an appointment please call Michelle (519-824-4120 x54800) and she can book a time for you to come in.
