Academic Advising

 

There are many academic advisors at Memorial University. The most appropriate advisor for you will depend on where you are in your academic program.

 

I am a new student at Memorial.

The Academic Advising Centre (AAC) is here to help you with academic questions or concerns. The AAC serves prospective, first year and undeclared students, as well as students transitioning between academic programs.

You may connect with us in person, by phone or email during the months leading up to your first semester at Memorial and at any point after your courses begin. Academic advisors are a resource for you throughout your studies at Memorial.

First Year Information (FYI) is another great resource for new students coming to Memorial. FYI includes information on available courses, programs and the registration process as well as sample programs for the first two semesters for all of our degree programs. It also contains information about various placement tests you may be required to write before starting your studies. You are encouraged to review the information in FYI to become familiar with Memorial, its programs and regulations and to use it throughout your first year.

The AAC provides a Registration Newsletter called ADVICE for New Students with timely advice about academic matters and things to do in those months before you start your first term at Memorial.
