Students already in progress of their BA degree need to register for their 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.

Fall Term 2018 and Winter Term 2019 opened May 26 for new students and those returning after a 12-month absence or more.

Open office hours

Students are advised during open office hours (except the first two weeks of the Fall and Winter terms). 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.

Starting Wednesday, Sept. 5 to Friday, Sept. 14, students can sign up for 20-minute appointments until Friday, Sept. 14. The sign-up sheet for these appointments is located on the Arts Advising Bulletin Board above the folding seats outside of Oland Hall, Ground Floor, Room 11.

  • Thursday, 1:30 - 3:50 p.m.

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.

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.
