  • The student advisees will prepare a brief report after meeting with the Academic Advisor each time.  (Attachments: Meeting Report (Group), Meeting Report (Individual))

  • The student advisees should complete the Consent Form (Attachment: Consent Form) during the first meeting with the Academic Advisor.

  • The original brief report will be kept by the Academic Advisor for record and a copy of the report will be uploaded to student record system for access of students and relevant parties.
