KSOM Advising Center

KSOM Is Centered Around You

We provide academic advising services to all KSOM students from freshmen through graduate students.

You are the most important part of the advising process. You will be getting advice from family, friends, faculty and advisors - but you make the decisions.

We will not tell you what to do. We will make suggestions and guide you through the decision-making process by providing you with information about courses and majors.

Course Recommendations and Curriculum Information

We will make course recommendations based on program curriculum; however, you will register for the courses. During your pre-registration appointment an advisor will explain the registration process.

We can provide you with information about the curriculum and the ways in which your major fits into and around the general education program at the University of Scranton. 

Long-range Planning

We can also discuss long-range planning issues, such as:

  • how to integrate a minor, second major, a year or term abroad, SJLA, or Honors coursework in your degree program.
  • helping you declare or change your major.
  • Suggesting appropriate campus resources to meet your needs -- but you need to communicate your needs to us.

Advisors can also:

  • Help you build a time management schedule that meets your needs.
  • Provide you with study tips to help you study smarter, not longer.
  • Offer you campus referrals to assist you with a variety of issues including homesickness, confusion about major, study abroad, etc.
  • Offer assistance if you have academic difficulty and provide information to help you achieve academic success.
  • Answer most academic questions you might ask. If advisors do not know the answer, they will help you find the person who does know the answer.
  • Help you clarify University policies and procedures.

Advisors cannot:

  • Choose your courses for you.
  • Drop courses for you without your written permission.
  • Tell you what your major should be.
  • Talk to your professors for you
  • Discuss your academic performance with your family unless you give your written permission.
