Student Advising at Seneca

Your Student Adviser

As a Seneca student, you have a dedicated student adviser for your program. Your student adviser is here to ensure that you have access to the support and resources available at Seneca and answer any program-specific questions (e.g. program requirements, course schedules, academic status and policies) that you have to help you move forward in your program successfully.

Your student adviser can assist you with:

  • Program prerequisite and graduation requirements
  • Academic status, regulations and policies
  • Educational planning to help you reach your academic goals
  • Referrals to specific service areas on campus to help you succeed
  • General program-related questions

Virtual Advising

At present, student advisers are offering various virtual/remote advising options, using platforms such as Cisco Webex, Zoom, phone, and MS Teams. Depending on program needs, your student adviser may also maintain an MS Teams site as a virtual advising community.

To find your student adviser, log in to Student Home. You will find your student adviser’s name and contact information listed on the homepage. Select the “Academic Progress” tile, then select “Advisers.” Your adviser’s name and contact information will be listed.”
