Preparing for an Appointment

Although the B.Sc. Academic Counselling Centre is closed to all in-person activities as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Program Counsellors are still available for scheduled appointments. We are happy to meet remotely using Microsoft Teams, which is available to all students with a U of G email account. Instructions will be provided on how to access Microsoft Teams when the appointment is booked.

What have you done to prepare?

What have you brought with you?

  • Did you bring a list of questions you would like to ask?
  • Have you brought any notes from previous appointments?
  • Have you thought about what courses you might take?

Are you looking for an elective course?

B.Sc. Program Counsellors are happy to provide advice about degree/major requirements and the associated rules and regulations. However, an elective is just that - an elective! Take what interests you. We will rarely be able to provide much insight into specific courses, especially those that are not Science.  If you are considering applying for further education after your B.Sc. degree, some students find it helpful to consider any possible admission requirements when planning which courses to take as electives.  For further details, please visit our Approved Electives page.

Urgent situations

For urgent situations, we offer a limited number of drop-in appointment most business days from 1:30 to 3:30 PM. Unfortunately, adding "Urgent" to the subject of an email message is unlikely to achieve a faster response.
