Academic Advising

Academic Advising is available to help students explore and learn about academic career options and university policies and procedures. At Rockhurst University, each student is assigned an academic advisor. Most often, the assigned advisor will be a faculty member from the student’s area of interest. In addition, each college within the University has a Director of Academic Advising who supports faculty advisors and serves as a resource for students. 

Students should see their assigned advisors to discuss selecting an appropriate program of study and choosing courses that will complete degree requirements. As a student, you can make the most of your college experience by understanding student and advisor roles and responsibilities.
