Starting in 2020, the new MySeattleU Student Planning tool will replace SU Online for all academic planning and registration functions. Students can use MySeattleU to access their program evaluations, view their schedules, search and register for classes, and create a plan for future quarters. Advisors can also approve and save those plans online through the Educational Planning feature.
To watch a step-by-step video tutorial for MySeattleU, check out the resources on the Advising Services page Tools for Advisors or download the quick guide below.
Launched in 2019, Redhawk SOAR (Student Outreach Advising & Retention) is the new early alert system that faculty and staff members can use to notify an advisor when a student is struggling in their class or may need additional forms of support. This is also where you can save advising notes for a student. To submit an alert or create advising notes, download the quick guides below.
In order to improve retention and overall student experience, the College of Arts and Sciences has implemented a Dual Advising Model. For their first year, all new first-time-in-college (FTIC) students will be assigned both to a faculty advisor in their major department/program and a professional advisor in the Arts and Sciences Advising Center (ASAC). Students can see both their advisors' names and contact info by logging into MySeattleU Student Planning.
Each professional advisor in the Arts and Sciences Advising Center acts as a liaison to a department/program in the College of Arts and Sciences. As the liaison, the ASAC advisor meets regularly with key departmental figures to share information from the ASAC and stay up-to-date on any departmental news. The liaison is also faculty members' "go-to person" when they have any advising-related questions.
See the list of advisors and their liaison responsibilities below.
