Academic Advising

Academic advisors can play a critical role in promoting students success and, as a result, help to retain them. Students who feel connected to an institution, feel cared about, understand their purpose, and have clear academic and career goals are more apt to persist in their academic endeavours. 

Email studentserv@upei.ca to book an academic advising appointment.

Have questions about registration, degree audits, prerequisites, transcripts, verifications of enrolment, convocation, important dates, courses, exam-scheduling, academic regulations, and academic calendar?
