Where should I go for a copy of the Faculty Handbook?

You should first check your acceptance package for a copy of the Handbook. If you did not receive a copy in your package, you may request a copy from the Admissions Section of the Registry or the Social Sciences Faculty Office. Alternatively, you may view or download a copy from the Faculty’s website.
