SCS Advising Corner

Welcome back, everyone, and welcome to my Advising Corner! My name is Sam, and I am thrilled to be starting as your new student advisor for the Bachelor of Communication program.

This has been an interesting start to the semester, to say the least. Lots has happened already, and there are a few key things that you all need to keep in mind while you settle into your Winter courses:

1. Winter 2022 Tuition Deadline – The deadline to pay for your Winter 2022 fees passed on January 18th. If you missed this deadline, please reach out to the Office of the Registrar immediately at 403-440-3303 or creditregistration@mtroyal.ca. You will have until the end of the month to be reinstated into your courses.

NOTE: As long as you submitted your payment by 11:59 pm on January 18th, you will remain in your courses even if it takes a couple of business days for your payment to be processed.

2. Phased Return to Campus – This has been addressed in other posts, but keep an eye on your email for more information. Some of your classes may start returning to campus as early as January 24th.

3. Peer Learning Program – Are any of your classes sounding like a bit more than you can chew? Is there a Math course you need to take, but Math isn’t your favourite subject? Sign up for the Peer Learning Program! This program, offered by Student Learning Services, matches you with a Learning Peer—a student who has learned how to master their courses and is volunteering to help other students with their courses.

This free and amazing program is open for registration until January 31st!

3. Mental Health & Student Success – Needless to say, the last several semesters have not been easy for students, staff, or faculty. As we move forward into another uncertain semester with some classes scheduled to return to campus and others prolonging their time online, please make sure to take care of yourself.

School is important, but it is not more important than your wellbeing. Many people are feeling the wear and tear as we approach our 2nd year anniversary of COVID-19, and all it can take is one thing to offset everything. Our friends in Student Counselling remain a free resource to help you in any way that they can.

Are you in need of help, but you aren’t sure where to go or what service to ask for? Start with our Early Support team.

You can reach Sam for any questions or concerns you may have at commadvising@mtroyal.ca. You can also book an appointment with him on the Advising Page.
