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.
