Academic Advisement Policy

At St. Norbert College, advising is integral to each student’s academic success. Advisors serve as a campus resource for students, assisting them in meeting their academic and career goals. Your advisor is someone who can guide you in your decision-making, self-understanding and intellectual growth over your years at St. Norbert College.

The benefits of academic advising:

  • Help developing an academic plan to meet your graduation goals and timeline
  • An opportunity to ask questions about how best to complete your degree requirements
  • Information regarding steps after graduation (graduate/professional school, employment, and so on)
  • Get updates from your advisor about new college policies and procedures
  • A resource to ask for guidance and support if you need it

Students are required to meet with their academic advisor each semester prior to registration. Students are encouraged to confer with their advisor regularly about curriculum, career and other academic concerns. Advisors hold regular office hours each week during school terms for students to drop in or call. Contact your advisor about office hours or to set up an appointment. 

Here’s what you can expect of your advisor:

  • Help exploring and developing realistic academic goals
  • Answers to questions about academic policies and procedures, or directing you to the appropriate office where your questions can be answered
  • Someone who knows campus and community resources that can help you, such as where to find study skills assistance, tutoring, personal counseling and other educational opportunities
  • Resource for information on preparing for life after St. Norbert, be that employment or additional educational options
  • Information about graduation and degree requirements 

Student responsibilities for advisement:

  • Understand the requirements for your academic program
  • Familiarize yourself with academic policies outlined in the student handbook, college catalog and timetable
  • Provide your advisor with current information about your needs and interests
  • Make an advising appointment prior to your registration date each semester
