Academic Advising

Welcome to Academic Advising at the Learning Commons! Our dedicated advisors are here to guide and support you on your educational journey. We are here to sit down with you (in-person or online) to discuss all things related to your major, checklists, courses, core, and GPA.

Make an appointment with an Academic Advisor if:

  • your major is General Studies
  • you have not yet decided on your major
  • you are considering changing your major
  • you have questions about how to understand your checklist or how to balance your workload
  • you have questions about the liberal arts core
  • you would like some general academic advice
  • If you are waitlisted for a course, please contact the professor directly.
  • If you have questions about the courses in your major, please see your faculty advisor.
  • If you have questions about graduation, please go to Graduation info.
  • If you have questions about ordering letters or transcripts, how to transfer courses, the hold on your account, or how to make a payment, please use the Service Hub.

How To

The last day you can change classes is two weeks into the semester. To find the specific date, click here.

On the main advising page, scroll down and you will see “Program Checklists.” Choose the year that you started to see the right checklist.

Students should use the checklist year that matches their year of entry. Students who have taken two or more semesters away from TWU should use the checklist year of their return.  (Exceptions apply only to re-enrolling students within 12 s.h. of graduation).

Many students explore options for majors up to and including semester three. It’s a good idea to take different types of courses to find what you like. To discuss your strengths and think more about your future career, see the Centre for Calling and Career Development.

Go online to the Service Hub or visit the Service Hub in person in the Student Life office of the Langley campus.

Your Program Checklist and your Course Needs Advising Sheet will give you a breakdown of all your credit requirements and if they have been met to complete your degree. To view your course needs, go to the Academics page and look under Graduation. Also visit the Graduation webpage.

Up until the add/drop deadline, you simply go into your course registration to add or drop courses. After the deadline though, fill out the Add/Drop form. If you make a course change after add/drop, there is a fee. If you drop a course after week 2, you receive only a partial refund. See the refund policy.

Go to the main advising webpage, and in the top menu, you can choose “Change my major.” You will have to log in. If you are not sure what code to choose for your major, of if you have questions about the differences, make an appointment with your advisor. When you click to choose your major, this sets the direction for your future graduation, so it is really important!
