Required Advising

What is Required Advising?Advising is an annual advising session to be completed by all Lassonde students.  All departments support Required Advising as an opportunity for students to become aware of any changes to your curriculum, remind you of specific rules for your program and update you about any changes to the university’s policies or procedures. It is also an excellent opportunity to find out about available resources that can help you on your academic journey.

Advising Webinars

Advisor Webinar Series

The Lassonde Academic Advising team has recorded a series of webinars to assist our students with their studies and navigating administrative processes within Lassonde and at York. A webinar is an online video presentation that you can review anytime, anywhere, as long as you have an internet connection and speakers. Our webinars include bookmarks and are also transcribed for ease of use and to make notes should you wish. If you have any difficulty reviewing or accessing our webinars, connect with an Academic Advisor.
