If you have questions about your program after reading the calendar carefully, you should inquire at the department office about seeing the undergraduate advisor. The undergraduate advisor is there to answer questions such as "How can I fulfill specific program requirements?" or "Is there an equivalent course I can take to fulfill a requirement?".
Office Staff can also help with students' question. Some examples include: "Why isn't my name on the class list?", "Can I get this prerequisite waived?", or "What are the required texts for this course?"
Individual Professors and their teaching assistants (TAs) maintain posted office hours as well and are usually willing to consult with students about their course work or programs. You should consult individual instructors if you wish to appeal a grade, if you seek clarification about course content, or if you want to discuss doing an independent study course or an honours thesis with them.
