We will continue to respond to email but have also worked on a way for you to book an audio or video appointment for those who prefer a meeting. As students, you have access to Microsoft Teams through your Gryph Mail by clicking on the icon beside Outlook in the top left of your mailbox. The icon is a square made up of nine dots. We will use this platform to meet.   

Program Counselling Operations 2nd Update

Effective March 17th, all U of G employees have been asked to work from home. This means that the OAC Program Counselling Office will be adjusting the way we operate to comply with the recommendations for social distancing and limiting the spread of illness.

Please Note: We will only be available via e-mail until further notice. We do not have access to student files and so there may be limitations to what we can assist with, but we will work closely with you to determine your needs.
