Education Advising and Career Planning

Planning your education can be a challenging process, our Educational Advisors are available to answer any questions you may have, whether you are just beginning to explore your post-secondary options, selecting your courses or close to finishing your selected program.

Advisors are available to meet in-person, virtually through a Microsoft Teams appointment or by phone. Use the Book an Appointment button to schedule an appointment. You can also send any general questions to edadvisor@cotr.bc.ca

College of the Rockies’ Education Advising Syllabus has information on how to prepare for your advising appointment.

We can assist with:

  • Career exploration
  • Developing a career plan
  • Choosing programs and courses
  • Understanding how the post-secondary system works
  • Developing a university transfer plan
  • Checking you have all the courses required to complete your chosen program
  • Providing you with referrals to community agencies
  • Listening to your concerns about academic progress and developing strategies for success

Fortunately, if you take some time to explore different career options, you are much more likely to find a career that will be fulfilling and rewarding. An Educational Advisor can help with your career exploration, but is it very important to give yourself time to fully research different options.
