The AUD Academic Advising Division provides advising services to students. An Advisor's approval is required in order for these students to register. The Academic Advisor assists students in adopting a program of study and creating an individual program of study document. Prior to the beginning of each term, these students are required to meet with the Advisor to whom they are assigned in order to review the status of their degree progress, to discuss university policies and departmental requirements, and to select courses.
- Develop students’ knowledge on their academic responsibility towards familiarizing themselves with the courses, course sequencing and load during their academic years.
- Encourage students to reach their full academic potential by setting up regular meetings, staying updated on their academic status and customizing course loads to each students’ capabilities.
- Personalize students’ experience by providing guidance on personal obstacles they face which influence their academic performance and conduct individualized follow-ups.
- Create greater responsiveness in regards to key academic factors that affect students’ progress towards graduation.
The mission of Student Retention and Success focuses on improving academic and professional viability and status through Academic Advising, Support, Career Services and Alumni Relations.
Hence, the Office provides guidance and support through the four main vehicles assisting students in achieving their goals as AUD candidates and graduates.
