Advising Process

The advising process for new students is designed to introduce you to the educational experience at Brandon University. Students will be able to register for courses after working with advisors who will:

  • Teach you how to find and navigate the BU General Calendar and Registration Guide
  • Help you to learn how to access and use Moodle, BU’s learning management system
  • Help you learn how to use the Student Information Portal where you can see your final grades in courses, generate and print a timetable with your class times and locations, and access your financial statement(s).

Please note that we have updated this process to comply with social distancing measures necessitated by the COVID-19 (coronavirus) health emergency. Advising content is delivered via BU’s online learning management system, Moodle, and advising appointments take place through phone call, video chat (via Zoom), or online chat (via Moodle). 

Before You Proceed

Students need their Brandon University login and password in order to proceed. If you haven’t done so, claim your Brandon University login and password now. Write it down and keep it somewhere safe so you can use it going forward!

  • Students have the option of booking a phone, online chat (via Moodle), or online video chat (via Zoom) appointment.
  • Students meet with advisors in order to discuss their academic goals and walk through the process of planning the academic year.
  • Students must prepare for appointments by watching videos on basic advising information via Moodle.

Option 2: Advise yourself and verify your courses with an academic advisor over email.

  • This option will work for you if you are familiar with the BU General Calendar and Registration Guide and therefore understand your degree requirements, how to determine pre-requisites, and can determine the time slots, terms, and final exam dates for your desired courses.
  • The New Student Advising video series on Moodle will teach you how to advise yourself.
  • Students submit their course plan to an academic advisor through an electronic form to be reviewed. An advisor will email you once they have verified your courses.
