Academic Counselling

Program Counselling

The B.Comm. program counsellor is available to assist prospective students in the selection of their major and initial courses, and to respond to questions regarding any other aspects of their anticipated program. The program counsellor will also assist in-course students who need information or advice about their program or other academic regulations, who seek information on services and resources available to students or who are contemplating transfer into or out of their current major or degree program.

Departmental Advising

On entering the program, all students are assigned a departmental advisor to whom they may turn for consultation in scheduling of courses and selection of electives, academic requirements of the program, and information concerning career opportunities. The required course selections and, where required, restricted electives are presented in the following pages.

Special Expenses

Expenses may include cost of field trips and supplies and, for some majors, laboratory coats and other protective clothing.

Study Abroad

Global understanding and perspectives are regarded as being of central importance among the university's learning objectives, as they are, also, in understanding the international business environment. On both of these accounts, students enrolled in the B.Comm. program are urged to participate in one of the several exchange and study abroad programs specifically designed for the Commerce program. Planning for such participation is best undertaken quite early in the course of studies. For more specific information on the opportunities provided for a semester in France and other locations refer to Section V--International Study or contact the B.Comm. program counsellor.
