Regis College finds academic advising to play an essential role in the experience of our undergraduate students. We strive to establish collaborative relationships between students and their faculty advisors, so that we as an Institution can support students in achieving their personal goals, academic aspirations, and career plans. This is accomplished by guiding students through completing their degree requirements, enhancing their awareness of curricular and extracurricular activities offered around campus, and providing complete support in helping them define their values and ambitions. The Office of Academic Advising serves to facilitate the best advising experience possible. This, in conjunction with the values of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Boston, will empower our women and men to challenge themselves academically, to serve, and to lead.
Each incoming freshman student at Regis will be assigned a First-Year Advisor to help them become acclimated to the campus and all the resources available to them. After a student’s first year, they are assigned to a faculty advisor—a professor in their major who will serve as their go-to for advising questions for the remainder of their time at Regis. Incoming transfer students are also assigned faculty advisors. The Office of Academic Advising serves to help students towards developing decision-making skills, deciding on their life and career goals, and evaluating their progress toward their established goals through the support of faculty advisors.
The Office of Academic Advising staff is available to help all undergraduate students. Students can meet with an advisor on the 2nd floor of the Library for a one-on-one appointment. For major-related questions, students should schedule an appointment with their faculty advisor.
During select busy periods of the year (e.g., registration and the first week of classes), it is best to schedule appointments ahead of time. General questions, if not answered on the Frequently Asked Questions page, can be sent to the academic advising email listed above.
Appointments with Academic Advising staff can be made through Starfish, or via email to the specific staff member you’d like to meet with.
