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).

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!

Planning on majoring in Business Administration?

Students who plan on majoring in Business Administration should follow a different advising process so you can receive advising specific to your program.

Choose Your Advising Option

Please review the instructions from both options and choose the one that works best for you. Both options require a time commitment of at least 2 hours. Whether you are booking an appointment or advising yourself, please plan your time accordingly. We look forward to hearing from you!

Option 1

Make an appointment with an academic advisor in Student Services

  • Students have the option of booking an in-person (1 hour), phone (1.5 hours), or online chat (1.5 hours) appointment.
  • Students meet directly 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.
  • Don’t worry if you change your mind — if you get stuck, you can always book an appointment instead!
