Academic advising

Academic advising is a collaborative effort between students, staff and faculty that empowers students to meet their academic goals and achieve their vision of success. Academic advisors are here to help you progress through your degree at Concordia.

(Graduate advising information varies depending on program. For an overview of academic advising and suggested contacts by program see Step 1 – Advising under the Graduate tab in the Registration guide.)

Advising structure for undergraduate students

Your main advisor’s contact information is in your Student Centre. Depending on your program, you may have access to additional advisors who can answer your questions and assist with academic planning:  

What you must do before meeting with your advisor

Remember – academic advice is unique to you!

Academic advice ​can vary — even for students in the same program or faculty. Keep in mind that your classmates have individual circumstances that impact the academic advice they receive so it is strongly recommended that you connect with your academic advisor to get personalized answers to your questions. Contact your program advisor!
