Academic Advisement Committee

The Academic Advisement Committee provides ongoing academic advisement for all of St. Joseph's College's students. Freshmen are assigned to an adviser from their major interest (if known) or to an exploratory adviser. After a student declares a major at the beginning of sophomore year, the department chair becomes the academic adviser.
