Group Academic Advising
In these sessions, you will learn more about how Academic Advisors assist students to maximize their time spent in the College of Arts and Science. Students will learn about how to use systems that support planning and learning, what to expect, and where to go for assistance throughout their time in the college. This is a chance to meet with Academic Advisors and ask questions in a comfortable, on-campus, classroom space. You will be able to register in sessions specifically designed for first-year students, international students, Indigenous students, or second-year students.
