Office of Advising

Office of Advising

All on-campus undergraduate SXU students are assigned a faculty or staff advisor who assists them in planning their course of study, selecting appropriate classes and reaching their academic goals. It is the responsibility of each student to know his/her advisor's name and to contact the advisor for academic counseling.

Advisors are available to answer questions, give information and provide guidance in areas of course selection, program evaluation, and educational planning. Advisors can also answer questions about scheduling, core requirements, placement test scores, transfer credit, articulation agreements, academic progress, determination of major for undecided students, academic policies, CLEP tests and degree completion status.

Advising staff is also available to explain policies and procedures and to refer students to other University student services. Additionally, the office processes changes of majors and advisors, maintains administrative responsibility for two testing programs and coordinates yearly student recognition awards.
