Academic Advising


The Office of Academic Advising serves as the starting point for students needing guidance as they navigate their individual academic plans at Rivier.

Academic Advisors work jointly with faculty, student life, career development, the counseling center, and other campus offices to ensure that each student is given the best possible academic experience while at Rivier University. 

Throughout the year, Academic Advisors:

► Assist students with course registration, add/drop and any schedule changes

► Guide students through academic transitions and, when appropriate, refer students to helpful resources

► Help address students academic questions and concerns

► Coordinate the notification process for short or long term absences due to sudden illness and/or sickness.

► Process change of major requests and notify faculty

► Discuss college policies and procedures regarding faculty and/or grading disputes when requested

► Assist instructors and faculty regarding excessive absences and missing coursework
