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.

Advising

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.

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. 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). Initial consultations are available by telephone, video, or in-person on a limited basis. Please contact Reception to book an initial consultation. Follow-up appointments for ongoing counselling are available by telephone or video only.
