How can an academic advisor help me?

Academic advisors are post-secondary professionals whose primary goal is to support you in reaching your academic and career goals. Our advisors use a developmental approach, meaning they teach you how to take responsibility of your own learning, including how to:

  • create an academic plan
  • add/drop/change your classes
  • access academic, social, mental, physical, and emotional supports

Advisors can also help you navigate through your program options, and college policies and practices.

How can a career advisor help me?

Group career advising sessions are available to current and future Lethbridge College students.

Students on government student loans will be ‘coded’ so that they will not be de-registered from classes. When we confirm a loan and request an amount be remitted directly to the college we email the student.
