Additionally, students will receive communication from the Academic Director regarding program updates and changes. Students are expected to use their University of Toronto email addresses regularly for all communication regarding their courses.

The Program Advisor meets with students to provide academic, personal, financial, transitioning, and general advice with regards to program and academic matters. In addition to organizing course information sessions and workshops, the Program Advisor also works with individual students to explore learning strategies oriented towards academic success.
