All students in the Faculty of Education will now make use of the new Education Student Services (ESS) centre. Located on the first floor of the Education complex, ESS is the new first point of contact for all general inquiries from current and prospective students in the faculty.

In-person and online learning is also being supported by the U of A’s Office of the Registrar, which launched a new Student Service Centre to provide one point of contact for the information, support and services students need for their university journey. Current students are reminded to monitor their university email account for updates and changes throughout the year. 

“From a student services perspective, I think we’re better off now. If students want to access a service in person, it's there in person. If they want it remotely, it is there remotely—they can access all student services from anywhere.” – André Costopoulos, Vice-Provost and Dean of Students
