The Chapman Family Foundation Center for Academic Advising & Student Success

Welcome to the Chapman Family Foundation Center for Academic Advising and Student Success!

Our team of academic advisors will help you make important decisions about selecting courses, picking a major and staying on track for graduation and beyond. We are committed to your success and offer an array of programs, resources, and services designed to support your holistic journey as a student. Meet the Student Success Team.

You should meet with your academic advisor each semester before registration to review your academic progress, plans for future terms, and discuss engagement opportunities and post-graduation goals.

Here are some things you can discuss with your advisor:

  • General education requirements
  • Major and graduation requirements
  • Course planning and selection
  • Academic support if you’re experiencing academic challenges
  • Educational opportunities (education abroad, research, internships, etc.)
  • Career and graduate school plans
  • Non-academic challenges

Although no single advisor has expertise in all areas, every advisor can help direct you to resources on campus.
