At Dawson College, academic advising a collaborative process between student and advisor designed to help students make responsible educational decisions. Advisers can guide you in setting an educational plan for your studies here at Dawson and beyond. We can provide you with information on graduation requirements, program transfers, college policies and procedures, applying to university and more. We can also help you access college support services. Academic Advising for daytime students is located in 2D.4. Continuing Education Academic Advising is in 2H.1.
