Academic Advising and Support
Understanding Your Academic Audit
The Academic Audit is your roadmap to your Undergraduate Law program. The audit provides you with a snapshot of your progress and how to stay on track to meet your graduation goals.
Learn How to Read Your Audit
Regularly reviewing your audit will help you stay on track. You can learn how to read your audit using the Academic Advising Centre’s Academic Audit resources: Academic Audits and How to Read Your Audit.
Students can receive advising for their program via the Department’s Undergraduate Administrator, or for their overall degree via the Academic Advising Centre. Find out more about these services below.
Undergraduate Law Program Advising
The Undergraduate Administrator (your program advisor) helps students understand the following program related topics:
- Audit Review
- Course Registration Override Request
- Program and Course Requirements
- Change of Program Elements
- Switching into the Law Program
- International Exchange
Book a meeting with the Undergraduate Administrator.
Want to have your overall degree progress reviewed? Students are encouraged to connect with the main advising office, the Academic Advising Centre (AAC). The AAC offers advising sessions for students who are experiencing academic difficulty, need assistance understanding their academic audit, want to ensure they are fulfilling their degree program’s academic requirements or have been placed on Academic Warning.
