Academic Support

kihêw waciston’s student advisors are available to answer your questions and help you meet the challenges of university life. We offer encouragement, provide cultural and academic support and direct you to useful resources that will help you along your educational path.


Student advisors can talk to you about the admissions process, scheduling, enrolling in classes and managing your workload. We also answer questions about bursaries, scholarships and funding applications. Let us know about your academic concerns, too. We can help you with writing and study skills, tutoring and time management—or point you in the right direction to someone who can.
Please reach out to an advisor if you experience issues such as discrimination, harassment or cultural exclusion. We are here to support you and to advocate on your behalf.

Additional resources

MacEwan University’s Student Affairs office provides a range of academic and personal supports. We often refer students to the following services.


Access and Disability Resources (ADR)

If you are a student with a disability, we support you by coordinating accommodations, such as in-class support and exam services. As well, we are a first point of contact if you have concerns or experience discrimination related to your disability. We listen to you and refer you to the appropriate on-campus supports.


Career Development and Experiential Learning

Career Development and Experiential Learning (CDEL) helps students and recent alumni navigate their career journey with confidence. We give advice, provide resources, organize events and support experiential learning opportunities, such as internships, field placements and co-ops.

First-Year Experience

First-year university students encounter new environments, new knowledge, new people and new perspectives. We can help you navigate all of these new experiences successfully. Starting with New Student Orientation, and going throughout the year, we provide information on support and resources, extracurricular activities and ways to get involved to make the most of your university experience.

More Info


MacEwan University’s library is a key source of information for students as they begin a research project, find and evaluate information and learn to properly cite sources. Research librarians can help students at various stages of the research process, and the library website contains useful information on various aspects of research and citation.

The Writing Centre

Our peer writing tutors can help you to improve your communication and writing skills. Access this free service at any stage of the writing process, whether you are just getting started, struggling with writer's block or polishing a final draft. We can also teach you to avoid plagiarism and to use APA, MLA and Chicago documentation styles correctly.


Wellness and Psychological Services

If you are struggling with personal or academic stress and need someone to talk to, we can support you with free, professional, confidential counselling. Starting March 19, 2020, we are coordinating our care through the use of telephone and video-counselling options for students. This shift will allow you to connect with us from the safety of your own home and focus on self-care. Students enrolled in one or more credit courses can book an appointment to discuss health and wellness concerns. The first step is to attend an Initial Consultation (IC).
