Academic Advising

Undergraduate Academic Advising

Academic advising is for all students; those who are facing challenges, and those who are doing well. Laurier currently offers students the ability to visit central academic advisors, program specific faculty advisors, professional staff advisors or even their associate deans. Our mission is for undergraduate academic advising to support and enable students to create, refine and realize an academic plan that is informed by and aligned with their goals and aspirations, with the expectation that students are responsible for their academic path.

Laurier defines student success as the realization of four mutually reinforcing goals:

  • academic achievement
  • acceptance of responsibility
  • community engagement
  • health and well-being
