Advising for first-year students

Students already in progress of their BA degree need to register for your 2017-2018 courses before seeing the Academic Advisor, Tanya Pitt in Oland Hall, Ground Floor, Room 12. 

The Academic Advisor will not select your courses for you but is here to guide you through gathering the information needed so you successfully complete your degree.


Summer Term 2018 Opens March 1, 2018.
Fall Term 2018 and Winter Term 2019 Opens March 19, 2018.


Students are advised during Open Office Hours (except the first two weeks of the Fall and Winter terms). Open Office Hours means that students are seen on a first to arrive - first to be advised basis as appointments are not taken. Remember to bring an updated copy of your unofficial UNB transcript with you, which you can get through your e-services under the academic tab.

Regular open office hours for the 18/WI term for first and second year students are as follows:

  • Monday, 9 - 11:20 a.m.
  • Tuesday, 1:30 - 3:50 p.m.
  • Thursday 9 - 11:20 a.m.

Due to asthma and allergies please refrain from smoking and wearing perfume, cologne, deodorant, after shave, body sprays, and other scented products when you come to the office for advising. Thank you.

If you email Tanya please be sure that you include your name, student number and your career/educational goals along with the list of courses that you are registered for. The Academic Advisor will look your selections over and make recommendations based on all of this information.
