Academic Advising and Support at King's
Course Selection and Academic Advising
King's provides academic advising to assist students with course and program selection. Each incoming student is assigned an admissions counsellor and a faculty advisor. The admissions counsellor is there to assist in choosing courses during the first year of studies. After their first year at King’s, a student's faculty advisor provides answers if they have specific questions about their program or course selection.
If a faculty advisor is unavailable or unable to answer their questions, students may visit Nelson Wiebe, Academic Advising Coordinator. Additionally, questions about transfer credit or taking courses at other institutions should go directly to the Academic Advising Coordinator. All forms related to course prerequisites, program exceptions, program changes, and course permissions can be found at the Registration and Student Finance Office.
Each student has a program specific advisor report available to them through their CrossRoad Online Services. The advisor report is found under the registration tab and should be reviewed for assistance with program requirements and course selection. The advisor report should be reviewed prior to reaching out to any advising resource as it can answer many course related questions.
Academic Enrichment Centre
King's Academic Enrichment Centre (AEC) equips students with the support they need to thrive in their classes, labs, and assignments. The AEC also oversees Accessibility Services at the university.
Academic Support Assistants
Academic Support Assistants are senior students who work to help their peers hone study techniques, work on time management skills, and manage assignments and projects. They do their best to help their peers succeed, but are not tutors. Book an appointment with an Academic Support Assistant or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The Writing Centre helps students develop the skills, principles, and processes necessary to produce effective and impressive written work. Bring work in progress, ideas, or a completed paper to get guidance on shaping your drafts into a polished, finished product. Writing instruction is available from 9:00 to 1:00, Monday to Friday. Book an appointment, drop in during office hours, or contact Leonard.Fehr@kingsu.ca with any questions.
