Academic Advising

As part of your enrollment at the University, new and transfer students will participate in applicable placement testing and academic advising with their college advising centers.

Academic Advising

As part of your enrollment, you meet (virtually) with an academic advisor within your respective college, the College of Arts and Sciences, the Kania School of Management, or the Panuska College of Professional Studies. Your academic advising center should be reaching out in January prior to Orientation. If you need assistance with this, please email orientation@scranton.edu. In this meeting, you review your spring schedule, go over your academic goals, review any placement tests you may need to complete, and resolve any questions you have about academics at the University.

New Student Orientation Team

Our New Student Orientation Team is comprised of professional staff and student Orientation Assistants (OAs) who are so excited to welcome you to our campus community. Make sure you follow the Center for Student Engagement's Instagram to learn more about your Orientation Assistants!
