Continuing Education Advising

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, course prerequisites, college policies and procedures, applying to university and a lot more. Continuing Education students come see us in 2H.1.
