Academic Counselling

Academic Advice       

Student Services can provide academic advice, clarify policies, regulations and procedures, and handle formal student appeals.

Students concerned about their progress are encouraged to speak to Chris McGrath, Registrar, cmcgrath@cmcc.ca

Missed Exams
If you miss an exam for an unforseen circumstance such as illness or accident, please report this to your Education Director no later than one day following the examination in order to discuss a request for a deferred exam. You must also provide the Education Director with a completed Student Health Certificate within three business days of the absence. Click here to link to the Health Certificate.

Peer Tutoring
Peer Tutoring is available to all students in any subject or aspect of a subject. Through a review of concepts and coaching/mentorship, tutees begin to acquire alternate ways of learning course material. Students are matched with a tutor either on a one-to-one basis or in small groups, depending on the need. Tutors are paid $13.00 per hour of service, and they report consolidating their own knowledge in the process of helping another student learn. Tutees pay $75.00 for 10 hours of tutoring (which is subsidized by CMCC) and they report improved confidence and grades. Please see Wendy Court in Student Services to discuss our Peer Tutoring Program and pick up tutor and tutee application forms. Email contact: wcourt@cmcc.ca

Personal Counselling

Psychological and Academic Counselling

Student Services provides psychological services to help students and/or their partners with personal or academic problems, and to assist chiropractic interns with a variety of problems related to their work with patients.

At some point, almost everyone finds they have concerns that interfere with their success, happiness and satisfaction with life. One of the most helpful ways of dealing with such problematic situations and feelings is to talk about them with an experienced psychotherapist or counsellor. Counselling provides a rare opportunity to be listened to without being judged, and without being told what to do or what is “good for you.” Typically, it involves the exploration of problems in an objective and supportive environment.

Personal counselling is free to enrolled students. All may attend either individually or accompanied by those with whom they are in committed relationships. To make an appointment, please contact Ms. Katie McMahon, Student Counsellor, at 416-482-2344.  Email: kmcmahon@cmcc.ca. Appointments may also be made in person through Wendy Court at wcourt@cmcc.ca, or Peggy Cleary at pcleary@cmcc.ca in Student Services.
