The Academic Advising Centre provides faculty advising services to students who have already begun their studies at Emily Carr. During the fall and spring semesters, faculty advisors are available, by appointment, to assist students with program planning, graduation requirement reviews and course substitutions. Faculty advising at Emily Carr is attended voluntarily, however, these kinds of advising sessions have proven to be very successful in assisting students to map their overall program plan.
Those students in academic difficulty (i.e. on academic probation or in receipt of multiple academic warnings slips) must attend mandatory advising sessions with the Associate Registrar - Advising, in order to chart a plan for academic success. Students requiring such appointments will be sent a notification advising when a session is mandatory.
The Academic Advising Centre is located in Room 100iNB. Appointments can be booked by calling (604) 630-7425.
Students can monitor their progress and the requirements of their program in the Program Evaluation part of insideEC.
