MacEwan International advisors and staff can answer your questions and help you adjust to university life in a new country. We offer encouragement, provide cultural and academic support and direct you to resources that will help you along your educational path.

Our student advisors can help you register for and get enrolled in classes, participate in clubs and activities, understand campus policies and processes and adapt to a Canadian university experience. Regulated advisors at MacEwan International provide free immigration consultations and advice for current students.

MacEwan International refers students to academic, social and personal support programs offered by the Student Affairs office and the Students’ Association of MacEwan University (SAMU).


Academic Integrity Office

We believe fairness and ethical behaviour are best fostered through education and prevention, not policing and discipline. When academic misconduct is suspected or does occur, we treat students fairly and respectfully.

Contact the Academic Integrity Office if you have questions about restorative practices, academic integrity or the process for reporting or responding to academic misconduct.


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.

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).
