Academic Advising

Alternative Text

Academic advising is one of the most important services available to Molloy University students. It is much more than the technical approval of course selection. Academic advising is critical to student success, connecting each student to a faculty member who will guide and mentor them during their time at Molloy.

Each academic department is responsible to assign faculty advisors to declared majors who fall within their department. Undeclared students are assigned advisors who will give them guidance regarding academic programs which may be of interest and the opportunity for self-reflection about skills and interests. These advisors are assigned by the Associate Dean for Academic Services. All advisors provide course selection assistance, appropriate referrals to college offices, career advice and assistance interpreting policies and procedures.  Advisors listen, support and provide guidance when problems arise. 

Current students can learn the name and contact information oftheir advisor by logging in to Lion's Den. Advisors can obtain a list of their advisees through Lions Den and advisors will receive a status sheet for each new advisee from the Admissions Office. Undeclared students’ academic advisors are assigned in early October.
