What is the difference between Academic Advisors and Counsellors?

 Counsellors are professionally trained therapists who offer free, voluntary and confidential personal, educational and cultural counselling services to all registered students. They assist students and the public with exploring and identifying a career and academic direction to match personal interests, abilities, goals, work values and preferences.

Academic Advisors  help determine appropriate program and course selections to meet education or academic goals. They assist with reading and understanding program information, course descriptions, and prerequisites. Advisors help students to develop a plan to  select appropriate courses and electives to complete their desired credential(s) at Camosun or beyond.
