Required Advising

What is required advising?

All Lassonde students are required, by their program, to participate in a required advising session at least once per year. During these sessions, an Academic Advisor will provide important updates to degree requirements and University and Faculty policies and procedures.  The purpose of required advising is to keep you informed of your degree requirements and important updates to your curriculum. We also want to help you understand what is expected of you as a student and how we can help you create clear and attainable goals.
