New students have an opportunity to meet their Tutor at Summer School or at one of the first weekends, or by scheduling an appointment at any time prior to the beginning of the semester. New students are encouraged to contact their Tutor prior to the start of the semester.
In addition to their Personal Tutor, students can seek advice from one of our Academic Advisors, who are available to see students by individual appointment, through group-advising sessions and by phone or e-mail contact. Contact the Dean, Student Affairs for more details.
