Meet with an Academic Advisor

LA&PS Student Success & Academic Advisors work collaboratively with students, faculty, staff, and community partners to meet the diverse and holistic needs of all of our students. It is our mission to provide quality academic advising that supports students in achieving their personal, academic, and career goals. By helping students interpret university policy, providing referrals to appropriate resources and assisting students in creating individual plans for academic success, our Student Success & Academic Advisors empower students to make informed decisions about their academic and life goals and improve their student experience.

If you are a new student that has received an offer of admission but have not begun your first term of classes, please visit our new students webpage to find the information you need for enrolment and next steps.
