Open Acadia Has Moved!

Thousands of students moved into a new home in Wolfville this summer. So did we!

Open Acadia's staff and services have relocated to new locations to offer more convenient and centralized support for students. The Registrar's Office is now a one-stop shop for most students' course and programs inquiries, including questions about Online Learning, Spring & Summer courses, and EAP.

All of our email, telephone, and web contact information has remained the same. If you'd like to speak with someone in person, please visit us at one of our new locations:

Spring & Summer courses, Online Learning, TESOL, Certificate in French Proficiency, and all other Open Acadia undergraduate programs:
Students can now visit the Registrar's Office for support.
