The Academic Advising office for Day students is now located in 2D.4.

Academic Advising is an information service designed to help all Dawson students with educational decision making. Advisers will help you set an educational plan for both your stay here at Dawson and for university. We will provide you with information on your graduation requirements, program transfers, college policies and procedures, applying to university and a lot more. Day students come see us in 2D.4 and Continuing Education students come see us in 2H.1.

Drop-in times follow the schedule below. They are subject to change on a weekly basis. Check with the Advising Secretary at (514) 931-8731 ext. 1176 to make sure advisers are available.
