Types of academic advisors

As a Concordia student, you have access to program-, department- and faculty-level advising, to make sure you speak to the professors and staff best positioned to give you the right advice.


Academic advice ​can vary — even for students in the same program or faculty. It’s important to connect with your academic advisor to get personalized answers to your questions. Find your main advisor’s contact information in your Student Centre.

Depending on your program, you may also have access to additional advisors who can answer your questions and assist with academic planning.
