You might hit some snags – both big and small – during your time in university and need a little help getting back on track: An essay thesis you just can’t articulate. A forgotten password. Questions about your career options. Stress and anxiety that make it difficult to focus.
That’s why MacEwan offers a range of services for students – everything from academic advice to health and wellness support. No matter what you’re struggling with or need guidance on, we have a service that can help you out.
This year, we have had to adjust how we deliver some of those services. Some remain accessible in person, some are available online, and many offer a blend of the two.
Here’s how you can find the services you might need.
If you have questions about your program or major, want to add or drop a course, are considering changing your academic path, or need information on academic policies and procedures, our academic advisors are the people to talk to.
If you need pointers on writing, citing or test prep, you’ll definitely want to connect with Writing and Learning Services (WLS). This team of tutors can provide you with the advice, feedback and resources you need to succeed in all areas of learning.
All WLS offerings have now moved online. If you have a question you would like to discuss, you can book an appointment for a virtual chat with a tutor. If you want feedback on a piece of writing, you can submit it through an online form. To access these services and other learning resources, visit the WLS webpage.
John L. Haar Library reopens to accommodate student needs
If you will be accessing the library on campus this fall, here are some things you will need to know.
Access and Disability Resources (ADR) helps remove barriers to learning for students with disabilities by providing a variety of resources and services, and coordinating accommodations. To get started, book an appointment with an ADR learning specialist to discuss your needs. Though appointments will primarily take place online, in-person meetings can be scheduled if necessary.
If you are looking for mental health support, our counsellors in Wellness and Psychological Services (WPS) are there for you. Sessions with counsellors are now available online via video counselling, or over the phone.
Initial consultations are available in person on a limited basis.
For more information or to book an initial consultation, contact WPS at email@example.com or 780-497-5063.
Careers and Experience
If you’re looking for advice on getting your career started, or would like to find experiential learning opportunities like practicums and co-op placements, you might want to connect with our Careers and Experience team.
You can still book an appointment with a Careers and Experience advisor, which will take place virtually or over the phone. You can also participate in drop-in sessions via Google Meet every Monday and Thursday, or check their website for informative videos and courses. To connect to any of these services, visit MacEwan.ca/MyCareer for more information.
