Advising

Albers Advising Services

The Albers School of Business and Economics provides students with several layers of advising services designed to help students succeed throughout their time at Seattle University.

Academic Advisors

Albers students are assigned a professional Albers Academic Advisor. Students' advisors are listed on their Program Evaluation and MyProfile on SUOnline. Freshmen students are required to meet with an Albers Academic Advisor during winter quarter and with their New Student Mentor during fall and spring quarters of their freshman year. Transfer students are required to meet with an Albers Academic Advisor during their first two quarters of attendance. All Albers students are encouraged to meet regularly with their Academic Advisor to update their educational plan. 

Individual Appointments

Twenty minute appointments can be scheduled by calling (206) 296-5700, stopping by Pigott 318, or online via Starfish. Schedule your appointment well in advance.

Walk-In Advising

Walk-in hours are for quick questions that can be answered within 5-10 minutes. Questions about minors, registration, academic policies, and campus resources are appropriate for walk-ins. Education abroad, educational planning, major exploration, and academic probation should be discussed in a scheduled 20 minute appointment.  Most advising holds will not be lifted during our walk-in hours.

Weekly Walk-in Schedule

Monday: 9 a.m. - 11 a.m.
Wednesday: 10 a.m. - 12 p.m.
Thursday: 2 p.m.- 4 p.m.

Additional walk-in advising hours are available during the first week of the quarter and registration period.

New Student Mentors

All Albers freshmen are assigned to a New Student Mentor. NSMs are junior and senior Albers students who are trained on advising, mentorship, and college transitions. Freshmen students are required to meet with their NSM and attend select events prior to registering for winter and fall quarters.

Faculty Mentors

Albers sophomore, junior and senior students are assigned a Faculty Mentor to serve as a resource for selection of major electives, career exploration, post-graduation education, and other academic topics. Faculty Mentors are assigned early in winter quarter each year. Students are encouraged to set up one-on-one meetings with their faculty mentors.

Albers Placement Center

The APC provides job search preparation assistance, information on job and internship opportunities, employment resources, and programs that bring the business community to campus. For more information about career advising resources visit the Albers Placement Center website.
