Academic Advising

Academic advising is a collaborative relationship between a student and an academic advisor. Academic advising is available to all Faculty of Science students.

Regular contact with an academic advisor, individuals who can assist you with developing and achieving meaningful educational and career goals, is recommended.

Connecting with Advising

We strongly encourage students enrolling in Year 1 of the Health Sciences program to take advantage of individual counselling and information sessions held each year during the Laurier 101 program.

All academic advising and registration inquiries must be submitted using two separate forms which can be found under “Frequently Used Forms” on the Science Academic Advising page.

These forms will direct you to resources to help with your query and will put you in touch with the appropriate person or office at Laurier to assist you.

Program Checklists

You are strongly encouraged to use the Honours BSc Health Sciences Program Checklist to: 

  • Track your progress through each year of your program. 
  • Ensure that you are meeting all of the program requirements for graduation.

Make sure you complete the appropriate document fully and bring it with you to your advising appointment:

  • 2020-2023 Program ChecklistFor students admitted to Health Sciences in September 2020, September 2021 or September 2022.
  • 2014–2019 Program Checklist: For students admitted before September 2020. 
    • Note: You can also adopt the 2020-2023 program checklist, provided you do so in its entirety. For example: in order to be eligible for graduation, you must follow all program requirements for the old or new curriculum.

All the information on the program checklists is available in accessible format under Progression Requirements.
