Student advisors

Jameson Hall steps

 

The Faculty of Humanities has a team of curriculum advisors for undergraduate students, available throughout the semester (see consultation times below). When you meet with a curriculum advisor, always make sure you bring along:

  1. a printout of your Unofficial Transcript, and
  2. a Change of Curriculum form. 

Change of curriculum forms can be downloaded from the UCT Student Administration web page. Click on the Change of Curriculum form (ACA09) (see right-hand sidebar also). We encourage you to visit UCT Student Administration web page regularly since most administrative forms are available from this URL. 

Your unofficial transcript must be printed off the UCT Peoplesoft system on the web; make sure you have printed a new version since the last time you made changes to your curriculum.

(Pro tip with printing out from Peoplesoft: in many browsers Peoplesoft will only print the visible portion of the frame showing the unofficial transcript. To prevent this, click anywhere in your transcript and then hit <CTRL><A>, to highlight all. When you print, click the box in the browser's print menu which says "Selection" or "Print selection", and it will then print everything you've highlighted instead of only the visible bit of the frame).
