Academic Advising

What is the Advising Center?

All first year and transfer students receive academic advising from professional advisors in the Advising Center, located on the first floor of the Howard Building within the Admissions Suite. Once a first year student has chosen a major, he or she is assigned a faculty adviser in that major. JU encourages students to establish and maintain close, personal contacts with their academic advisors throughout their college careers.

The Advising Center provides special services to help students achieve academic success including long-term planning, educational planning, major guide sheets outlining degree requirements and specific course prerequisites, career advising for undecided and change of major students, the Academic Intervention Form for identifying specific areas impeding student success in a particular class, special advising programs for students experiencing academic difficulty, and mid-semester progress reports.

Depending on your High School/College transcript you may need to take the math placement exam. You will be notified whether the math placement exam is required once the deposit has been received. A link will be sent to you to take the exam online. If the math ​placement is required, it must be taken before an advising appointment can be made.

Academic advising is an on-going process that assists students to develop and pursue educational and career goals and to achieve academic success. Academic advisors inform, support, and encourage students to become self-directed in their educational planning.
