Educational Advisors advise students who are in the following programs:
a. General Studies diploma
b. Program Paths (e.g. Kinesiology studies, arts studies, general studies)
c. Transfer students (students wishing to transfer to another program or institution)
Preparing for your appointment with an Educational Advisor:
a. Research information about your program or desired program.
b. Write down your questions to ensure each is answered.
c. Call if you’re running late or need to reschedule.
Typical questions we get in appointments are:
a. "What is a (fill in the blank): certificate, diploma, degree, major, minor, breadth requirement, prerequisite, etc."
b. "How do I get into the program I’m interested in?"
c. "I do not have Math 12, what should I do?"
d. "I’m in Nursing and I want to switch over to Business.  Can I take my courses with me?"
When we don’t have the answers, we will refer you on to the best resource(s).  For example:
a. “I have no idea what I want to do with my life!” (Counselling services)
b. “I need help finding a job.” (Career Services)
c. “I can’t afford to pay my rent.” (Student Awards and Financial Aid)
d. “I fell and hurt my arm so I can’t write.  I need help” or “I have a disability and need resources to help me” (Disability Resource Centre)
e.  “I want to meet people on campus.” (Student Life)
