Academic Adviser

D’Youville is committed to offering students collaborative academic advising services.  Upon entering the college, students are assigned a Student Success Team consisting of a primary academic advisor, faculty mentor within their program, and a career coach.  Team members work in collaboration with each other and other campus partners to provide a comprehensive set of programming activities helping to provide on-going support and interventions throughout their enrollment.  Additionally, students are required to meet with their primary advisor at least one time per semester which allows for continuous development and promotes on-going advising which meets each student’s individual needs. 

Students are welcome to contact their advisor at any time during the semester. Advisors are available 8:30am – 4:30pm, Monday through Friday; or by appointment.

Change of Adviser

Ordinarily a student will retain the adviser assigned by the department chair. An individual wishing to change advisers should obtain a change of adviser form. After completing the form with the required department signatures, the student must return the form to Solutions for processing.
