Welcome to the Academic Advising Office!

We help students plan their programs and courses, find accurate degree information, resolve academic issues, and develop strategies for success. Our academic advisors and counsellors can help navigate the best match between personal goals and our academic programs, advise on problems that are affecting studies, assist in checking degree requirements, and make appropriate referrals. We support students throughout their time at King's.

Summer Drop-In Hours
The Advising Office will pause drop-in hours and appointments from May 6 to June 7
, as the team will be busy adjudicating student records for graduation, progression, and admission into programs. If you have questions about your summer courses, you can visit our front office from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday to Friday, or email us at academic.counselling@kings.uwo.ca.

You can check your adjudication comments in early June on your Student Center by clicking on Academics -> Program Status -> Grade Report - Progression.

The academic consideration form is available.
We look forward to meeting with you again during regular drop-in and appointments beginning June 10.

What is Adjudication?
Adjudication is a period of academic assessment to determine a student's eligibility for admission to, progression in, or graduation from requested degree and module choices.

There are two periods of adjudication:

  • May: assessment of a student's final grades from the Fall/Winter term and Intent to Register preferences
  • August: assessment of a student's final grades from the Summer term

Grade Report
After decisions relating to your academic progression have been communicated to the Office of the Registrar, you can see your results on your Grade Report in your Student Center: go to Academics > Program Status > Grade Report - Progression.
