    • 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.
  • Assumption University is committed to providing equity, access, and inclusion for all students with disabilities within all aspects of the campus community.
