Academic Advising

Your Academic Advisor serves as your personal contact from your first class all the way through graduation. Your Advisor can help you with a host of helpful services.

Academic Advising Mission Statement

Franklin University's academic advising is accessible, timely, and student centered. Using an integrated approach, our professional advisors advocate for and encourage students as they attain personal and educational goals. In collaboration with the University community, we teach our students to connect with available resources in order to foster a culture of success.

Academic Advisors can assist you with:

  • Understanding administrative processes and academic programs
  • Exploring options regarding majors and potential careers
  • Course scheduling
  • Creating a tentative Personal Education Plan upon request
  • Referring you to other resources or University offices like Financial Aid
  • Reviewing your academic progress, course selection, and graduation requirements
  • Deciding whether to take classes on campus or online
  • Finding answers to questions by promptly responding to email and phone inquiries
  • Understanding your Academic Evaluation
  • Developing goals to assist you with overcoming obstacles toward your success as a student
