Academic Counselling and Student Support

With all of the choices we offer, it can sometimes be difficult to decide exactly what opportunities to pursue or courses to take.

The academic counsellors in the Faculty of Social Science are available to support you with your academic decisions.

As well, each department has an academic advisor who can provide more specific information about their department’s programs and courses.

  • Confirm your course selection and review program requirements;
  • Create a personalized timetable with help from an orientation leader;
  • Register for courses or make changes to your course selection; and
  • Learn more about all of the services Western has to offer.
