Academic Advising and Support at King's

Academic Advising

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.

Advisor Reports

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.
