Academic evaluation

At any time, you can view and print your academic/program evaluation, which is available on Webadvisor. This document provides a summary of your degree and specialization requirements and reports on your performance to date. It operates like a checklist, indicating which requirements you have met and which ones have yet to be completed. The information on your evaluation corresponds directly to the calendar, degree and specializations currently on record for you. Please contact the ID advisor or your program counsellor if your evaluation is not up-to-date.

Additional academic support services:

See the comprehensive (and convenient) list of services for current students on the UofG website. This includes academic resources, supports for health & wellbeing, student involvement information and a host of other student services.
