Academic Advising

Each of the departments in the Faculty of Science is committed to providing the best possible information and guidance to students for their academic programs.

Incoming First-Year Students

We strongly encourage students enrolling in Year 1 of any Biology program to take advantage of individual advising and information sessions held each year from May through July during the Faculty of Science Headstart program.

Current Students

You can set up an appointment with an academic advisor year-round.

If you have general questions, wish to change programs or are at risk academically, see Central Advising.

If you are on academic probation, are at risk, or are a general Faculty of Science student without designation, see Science Advising.

Otherwise, continuing students in Biology programs seeking course and program advice should contact the department's academic advisor.

If you would like to take more than 2.5 credits in one term, you will have to fill out the Biology Course Overload Request Form.
