Academic Advising

How do I find out who my Academic Advisor is?

Go to your Student Portal. Click on Change of Major/Advisor and your Advisor and their email address will be listed under the Degree Information section. Can’t find what you need – contact learningcommons@twu.ca

When is the add/drop deadline?

You can find this and other important dates at www.twu.ca/registrar

Where can I find my program checklists?

All the checklists are available here.

I’m still deciding what to study, is that OK?

Yes! Many students explore options for majors up to and including semester three. Why not book and see our Career Counsellor, Joelle Turner, who is an expert in helping students thinking through their options. You can sign up online for an appointment with Joelle.

I can’t register for courses. What do I do?

Don’t panic! There may be a hold on your account. Visit the Registrar’s office help desk or call 604-513-2070.  

How do I know if I have enough upper level credits or enough credits to fulfil my major?

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 access Course Needs, go to the Student Portal, and click on the Course Needs link. If you have any questions arrange a meeting with your Academic Advisor.

How do I drop a class?

Up until the add/drop deadline, you simply go into your course registration to add or drop courses. After the deadline though, you need to contact the Office of the Registrar and request the Add/Drop form.  After the add/drop deadline courses are subject to a portion of tuition being forfeited.

How can I change my major, add a minor, add a concentration?
