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 Officer and a faculty advisor. The Admissions Officer 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.
Centre for Teaching and Learning
King's Centre for Teaching and Learning (CTL) equips students with the support they need to thrive in their classes, labs, and assignments. The main goal of the Centre is to create success for the entire King’s community as life-long learners.
Learning specialists are available to provide and direct specialized student support. Each specialist will work with students individually or in groups to help identify ways students may improve academically. As students learn to adjust to university life, students will be provided tools and resources to help them succeed through their academic endeavors. Navigating and being mindful of the unique skills and challenges that may be faced by mature students, students with disabilities, Indigenous students, international students, and ESL students is also of importance to the available learning specialists.
There is support for student with learning, physical, medical or emotional disability that impact academics.
Kristin Lemke, Manager Centre For Teaching and Learning and Accessibility Services is here to help.
