Advising for second-year students

For students who are entering their second year of studies, you need to select your courses before seeing the Academic Advisor.

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.

If you have decided on a major or two disciplines for double major, please go to the advising information for Upper-year students where you will find the Faculty Advisor information. You can declare your major (or double majors) with the discipline specific Faculty Advisor once you have completed 10 term-courses. The Faculty Advisor becomes your advisor until you graduate.

Student who are undecided on a major or two disciplines for a double major, you will see Tanya Pitt.

Using the undergraduate calendar, you can look at course descriptions and determine if there are course prerequisites.


Fall 2020 (20/FA) and Winter 2021 (21/WI) terms will likely open mid-March 2020 for continuing students. The specific date will be announced when known.

For students new to UNB starting in September 2020, registration for Fall 2020 and Winter 2021 will likely open on a Saturday in late May 2020. The specific date will be announced when known.
