Program Advising

Current students - Undergraduate

Haskayne’s program advisors will provide you with accurate information regarding your degree program, policies and procedures and university resources. It is recommended to visit a program advisor at least once a semester to ensure you are on track with completing your degree requirements.

Please arrange to see a Program Specialist for advising at least once a year for accurate information regarding the HSB degree program, policy and referrals to university resources.

Program advising tips:

  • Book an appointment online through success.ucalgary.ca or come in during our afternoon drop-in hours.  You do not need to be a Haskayne School of Business student in order to book an appointment.
  • Come to your appointment with questions prepared and written down and arrive promptly in order to make the most of your advising time.
  • Bring your Unicard or government issued photo ID, program specialists will need to confirm your identity at the beginning of your appointment.
  • Take notes during your appointment.
  • Cancel your appointment if you cannot make it.
  • Appointments can be cancelled via phone, email, or online through the Student Success Centre. If you fail to cancel your appointment, your absence will be recorded as a ‘no show’, which will restrict you from online booking in the future.
  • Student traffic is high during registration times in September and March. Visit us early to avoid the rush.
