Program Counsellors

Program Counsellors are an excellent resource when students have questions related to academics. Whether it be getting advice on what courses to take, whether or not they are in the right program, what types of things the might do when they graduate or more. The Undergraduate Academic Information Centre provides a ​full list of Program Counsellors.
