Counselling and Accessibility Services

*Career Counselling and Community Career Counselling have become Career Advising and Community Career Advising. These services are now available through Career Services.

Counselling Services

Counsellors provide a confidential atmosphere where you can explore any topic or situation and discuss any concerns you may have.  Our counsellors are professionally trained, have a wealth of experience and knowledge and can assist you in areas such as academic issues, career counselling and personal concerns. If you are a full-time student, you are welcome to call and make an appointment with any of our personal counsellors.

Accessibility Services

Counselling and academic accommodations are available for students with documented disabilities (including 'non-visible' disabilities such as learning disabilities, medical conditions, and mental illnesses). If you wish to identify yourself as a student with a disability, please complete the online Early Identification Form. Early identification helps to ensure we have your services and accommodations in place for the start of classes.

Passport to Wellness

Wellness means living a balanced life and integrating aspects of the physical, intellectual, spiritual and community.  At Fanshawe College we want to make it possible for every student to have experiences that support a balanced lifestyle.  The Passport to Wellness series is an opportunity that students can take to support their personal wellness plan.  Students can participate in a variety of workshops and activities, and can then have their balanced activity plan verified for co-curricular credit.
