Academic Advising

At Assumption, all students are advised by informed, experienced, full-time teaching faculty committed to helping you chart your journey at each stage of your experience.

A Faculty Who Is Committed to Your Success

A university degree is more than just 40 courses and 120 credit hours for most. Rather, your university journey is a personal and intellectual journey, and no two are alike. Assumption is committed to academic advising founded on a strong, individual relationship between advisor and advisee.


  • First year: Assumption matches each student with an advisor based on academic interests and goals. Those advisors aid in the transition to university-level academics, guide students to resources on campus, including the University's online advising and registration system, WebAdvisor.
  • Second year: Advisors focus on supporting students as they choose among our 40 majors.
  • Junior year: In addition to course selection and career discussions, there are exciting opportunities such as study abroad or internships.
  • Senior year: Advisors support advisees as they apply to graduate school and post-baccalaureate scholarships, or move into the professional world.

First-rate Academics in a Catholic University Setting

Assumption University strives to form graduates known for critical intelligence, thoughtful citizenship and compassionate service. Rooted in the Catholic intellectual tradition, the University pursues these ambitious goals through a curriculum grounded in the liberal arts that prepares students for professionally and personally rewarding lives of meaning.
