CHYS ACADEMIC ADVISING
To make a CHYS advising appointment to meet with either Carol Penner or myself (Alison Lahn), please go to the CHYS website at http://www.brocku.ca/chys/ , then click on "Academic Advising" and follow the instructions from there. For your convenience, we offer either in-person OR phone appointments.
Students who schedule a phone appointment, please remember to call 905-688-5550 x 4299 on the date and time of your advising appointment.
A friendly reminder to those students who have already made a CHYS advising appointment with either Carol or myself, please remember to bring a pen, paper and list of questions with you. It is easy to forget questions or concerns you have when you are in an appointment.
Also, students who are unable to make their scheduled appointments, please remember to cancel your appointment at least 24 hours in advance. We understand that life happens and situations come up. However, the more notice you can provide is helpful as there may be other students waiting to get in for an appointment. Your cooperation and understanding is very much appreciated.
