The Alberta College of Art + Design offers a variety of support services to ensure student success. On this page, you can find information about counseling, academic skills assistance, and academic advising.
Counselling is available to full and part-time registered students, who may experience a wide range of personal, career, or academic issues.
The goal of ACAD Counselling Services is to help students cope with any stressors that may arise, with the aim of enhancing their emotional and psychological well-being. Counselling Services is here to support your social, academic, and vocational success. An ACAD Counsellor will help you learn to use your own resources (and develop new ones) in order to answer questions and solve dilemmas.
Some of the reasons that students seek counselling include:
If you feel that you need any academic support, clarification, or you’d just like to discuss your options – drop by the Learning Assistance Resources Office. The LAR also offers support to international students, and students with disabilities.
Academic support is discussed further in ACAD’s mandatory orientation seminars in your first year.
