Types of advising available

Academic Advising

Our Academic Advisor will help you plan your studies from the very beginning. And she can serve you better if you come to your meeting prepared. The various policies related to your program of study are specified in the Academic Catalogue. Some of the key points are summarized on the Program Requirements and Policies page. It is your responsibility to be familiar with this content.

Faculty advising

Faculty members are available to meet with you to provide counsel on academic pursuits, personal development, professional goals, or spiritual matters. Questions about how to complete your program, however, including questions about exemptions and transfer credits, should be directed to the Academic Advisor


If you’re seeking help with more acute psychological issues, we encourage you to contact the Dean of Students and/or participate in Regent’s Adjunct Counselling Service.

ESL Help-Desk

If English is not your first language and you would like some help with your use of English grammar and with proofreading, you may sign up for a 30 minute tutorial session here with Sherah Bodie (Wednesdays from 10:00–12:00 and 1:00–3:00) or Stuart Campbell (Fridays 12:30–2:00) in Room 14.

Writing Centre

If you're looking for a safe place to discuss your writing process please make use of the Regent Writing Centre. Visit if you need help to plan research, address ESL questions, review proper grammar or punctuation, cite sources correctly, bounce ideas off someone, or review a rough draft. For the Winter 2015 semester, the Writing Centre will meet in the Library Seminar Room at the back of Allison Library from 2:30 to 4:30 pm on Mondays, as well as from 3:00 to 5:00 pm on Tuesdays. Sign up here or, if you can't make these times, email Stuart Campbell at the Writing Centre.


Regent programs offer you a measure of flexibility. To help you plan your studies, choose your courses, and complete your degree in a timely manner, we've devised a set of pathways with recommended courses and timelines for each program. 

The Pathways document below will give you general information to help make your own study plan, and then it will provide more detailed information about the various programs and concentrations. If you have additional questions, please consult our Academic Advisor.
