Academic Advising

Academic Advising

Our advising program is part of the personalized educational experience you’ll find at Bryn Athyn College. Our advisors do more than just sign off on your course registration. They will take time to get to know you, your strengths, your goals, and even your life outside the classroom. You’ll meet regularly one-on-one with your advisor, who will ask questions about your goals, offer suggestions, and challenge you to explore your potential.

Our Goal

As an incoming student, you’ll begin with a dedicated staff advisor. Your first year advisor will work with you to explore the various offerings at Bryn Athyn College, and to help you choose an area of study best suited to your interests and abilities.

Your advisor will guide through completion of the First Year Experience Checklist, which encourages course and major exploration, and helps you set and meet realistic academic goals during your first year in college.

Once you’ve selected a major, you’ll be connected to a faculty advisor in your area of study. Your faculty advisor  will support you in designing and pursuing a course of study tailored to your career choices and life goals.

Your advisor can help by:

  • Assisting you in clarifying your career/life goals
  • Working together to make decisions about your course of study, possible internships, service, and study abroad
  • Facilitating communication with other campus departments and other individuals involved in your education
  • Monitoring your academic progress
  • Providing information about educational options, requirements, policies, and procedures

What’s your role?

  • Communicate with and get to know your academic advisor, meeting at least once per term to register for the next term
  • Tell your advisor about any academic concerns
  • Become familiar with academic requirements, procedures, policies, and course offerings
  • Take responsibility for your academic choices
