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.
Career development is a lifelong process of thinking about your values, needs and preferences and then using that information to explore work, life and learning options. Advisors work with future and current students to help with this process. Additional career services for current students are available through our Career Development office.
Completing a career interest assessment at Lethbridge College is a two-step process:
- Connect with an advisor to discuss and complete the Strong Interest Inventory ®.
- Book a one-hour follow up appointment with the advisor to discuss the results of the inventory, and explore next steps towards your career path. There is a small fee ($15.75) to cover the cost of the assessment.
To schedule a Career Advising session, please call 403-320-3366.
Accessibility Services works with prospective and enrolled students who identify challenges and request academic accommodations. Challenges may include learning disabilities, ADHD, sensory impairments, physical disabilities, mental health disorders and chronic medical conditions.
Before you register in classes, you may want to meet with Accessibility Services to:
- arrange for accommodated entrance testing
- discuss the range of supports and accommodations available for your prospective program and courses
- get advice on course load
Once registered in classes, Accessibility Services can work with you to:
- create an ‘Academic Resource Plan’ with services and academic accommodations (eg. exam accommodations, note-taking support, academic strategy support, access to alternative formats, etc.)
- complete funding applications for disability grants to cover your disability-related service and equipment costs
- provide ongoing disability advising
Please contact the Accessibility Services office to make an appointment. Also, if you have documentation of your disability, (e.g. doctor’s diagnosis, psychologist’s report, etc.) please bring that along to your first appointment.
