TREK: First-Year Mandatory Advising

Welcome to Brandon University! As you begin your journey at BU, we at Student Services are here to provide you with the resources and advice you’ll need to be successful.

What is Mandatory First-Year Advising?

As there are a number of degree requirements and regulations that can be confusing, all new students accepted to Arts, Science, Arts/Education Integrated, Business Administration, Physical Education, or Health Studies (Nursing, Psychiatric Nursing) are required to attend a mandatory TREK course advising session.

This process will help you to understand the degree requirements so that you make choices that best fit your academic plans and personal goals.

Before you can speak with an academic advisor and pick your courses, you must watch a series of Trek videos and pass a quiz with a 75% or better.
