PCPS Academic Advising

  • Students are responsible for knowing how to accurately read and utilize their Curriculum Compliance Report (CAPP). This should be used as an advising tool only. Knowing your academic requirements is your responsibility!
  • Read and become familiar with The University of Scranton catalog and Departmental Student Handbook.
  • Schedule an advising appointment with Academic Services each semester with a completed academic plan. Have a list of questions or concerns you want to discuss.  If you choose not to schedule an appointment, you will need to fill out a waiver. 
  • Register for courses at your assigned date and time. If you encounter any problems during registration, you can call us or complete a Problem Registration form the Monday following registration.
  • Know GPA standards within a specific area of your major such as overall, major and cognate GPAs.
  • Identify your goals as it relates to your education, career and personal life.
  • Understand the consequences of failure to meet established standards.
  • If you are going to be absent from class, especially for an extended length of time, contact your Professor and/or Advising.
