What Can I Expect From An Advisor?

An Advisor's role is to:

  • Provide you with accurate, up-to-date information about the University's programs, policies, and procedures.
  • Assist you in developing an educational plan that takes into consideration your academic background, course prerequisites, and career plans.
  • Guide you so that you may take advantage of the wide variety of services and educational opportunities that are offered by Seattle University.
  • Offer advising assistance when academic difficulties arise.
  • Allow convenient access to advising services through scheduled appointments.
  • Answer questions clarifying transfer credits and if appropriate, initiate the process to have transfer courses re-evaluated.
  • Keep a detailed record of issues discussed during advising appointments and follow-up with you in a timely manner on issues not resolved during your appointment.

What Does An Advisor Expect From Me?

What should I do to make the most of my advising appointments?

  • Familiarize yourself with your degree requirements, course prerequisites, deadlines, policies, and procedures as listed in the SU Undergraduate Catalog, Student Handbook and the schedule of classes on SUOnline.
  • Make an appointment prior to registration. Don't wait until the last minute!
  • Come prepared to your advising appointment. Develop a potential schedule and create a list of questions to review with your advisor.
  • Ask your advisor for information about campus resources and opportunities in your areas of interest.
  • Take the initiative to meet with your advisor periodically to review progress toward your degree. Freshman, new transfers and students on academic probation will need to meet with an advisor quarterly. All other students should meet with an advisor at least once a year to make sure you are on target for graduation.
  • Keep copies of your academic records, transcripts, and planning materials.
  • Verify with an advisor the information you hear through the grapevine.
  • Accept responsibility for your own decisions.
