The New College Registrar’s Office is your “reliable first stop” where you can get information, advice, or a direct referral. Frontline Registrar’s Office staff are familiar with university rules and regulations. Small-group academic orientation sessions are held in June and July to help newly-admitted students select and enrol in courses. The schedule for these sessions is available in the spring.
For more in-depth questions and concerns, you should book an individual academic advising appointment.
Advising appointments are generally 30 minutes in length and can be arranged with just a few days’ notice. At peak times of the year, there will be drop-in times available for urgent matters – check with the Registrar’s Office for these dates and times. You may wish to see an academic advisor to discuss:
- selecting courses and programs
- your academic progress and plans
- issues that are affecting your academic performance
- petitions and the petition process
- requirements for graduation
- university rules and regulations
- financial matters (OSAP, grants, scholarships)
- transfer credits
- graduate and professional schools
- resources and services available at New College and the University of Toronto.
Preparing for an appointment – Helping us help you!
- Have your TCard ready to show us.
- Have a list of questions ready.
- Ask for clarification if you are unsure.
- Take notes for future reference.
Remember, while we are here to help, we cannot make decisions for you. We will make your options as clear as possible and make sure that you are familiar with all the available resources.
