Academic Advising

Whether you are a new, transfer or mature student, there are a lot of questions to be asked and decisions to be made as you prepare for the year ahead. Lucky for you, our support team can help you take these next steps.

New Students

At the First-Year Advising Centre (FYAC), our team is here to help you define your academic goals, choose your courses, create a schedule and everything else that’s needed in order to prepare for university.

Returning Students

While the First-Year Advising Centre team is here to help you with questions related to appointment booking and registration, your actual advising appointment will take place with your faculty advisor.

Fall 2021 Registration: New Advising Appointment Booking Process

This May, CBU will be introducing a new process that will make the advising experience even more convenient and accessible for students. The new appointment booking calendar will be located within your Compass Student Account and further instructions will be posted on this page, and sent to your CBU email next month.

Preparing for your appointment

The time you spend with your advisor is valuable, but it is important you take the time to prepare. You will have about an hour to chat, so make the most of it. Prior to your appointment, we recommend you:
  • Refer to the CBU Academic Calendar and review your program’s required courses.
  • Make a list of any courses you want to take.
  • Prepare a list of questions to ask your faculty advisor.
