Responsibility for developing educational plans and setting goals rests with the student. Academic advisors contribute to this process by identifying alternatives, exploring likely outcomes, and referring students to appropriate resources.
Program Counsellors have particular expertise in degree program requirements and regulations, as well as the specializations and their fit within the degree program. Please review the PC examples of reasons when/why you may contact your Program Counsellor.
Faculty Advisors have particular expertise in the program specialization (major, minor, area of concentration, area of emphasis) and its fit within the degree program. Please review the FA examples of reasons when/why you may contact your Faculty Advisor.
University defined roles and responsibilities for students, faculty advisors, and program counsellors are outlined in Section VII--Academic Advising of the current Undergraduate Calendar.
