Your questions will be addressed during Program Counselling (Feb. 3rd - 14th), which you are expected to attend. This will include sessions conducted by:  

  • the various academic departments, giving detailed information on their disciplines 
  • the Dean's Office academic counsellors on degree requirements (how to submit your online ITR, how to choose and combine Majors, Minors, Specializations, how to cover Breadth and Essay requirements, how to know if your grades make you eligible for admission to the program you want, how to sign up for summer courses and so on)
  • the Faculties of Law and Education (Teachers' College) on future entry into their programs
  • Faculty members will be available in their offices during their regular office hours to answer questions arising from these sessions. 

Please watch for the email which will include the Program Counselling schedule and online Intent to Register web links and plan to attend these important information sessions. There will be no one-on-one program counselling during this period, though the academic counsellors will continue to be available for other kinds of consultation during drop-in hours.
