When To See An Academic Advisor
Academic planning is an integral component to ensuring your success at Sprott. We encourage you to take time to meet with an academic advisor to look at your academic plan before it’s too late. You need to meet with an advisor at least once per year or more if:
- You need advice about adding or withdrawing from a course
- You are considering changing concentrations
- You are concerned about inadequate study skills, are having difficulties in coursework, or are on academic warning
- You have questions about academic performance and requirements
- You need extra help in a course
- You are applying for graduation
