Faculty Advising Resources

CAS Faculty Advisor Sharepoint site 

All College of Arts and Sciences faculty and staff have access to the CAS Faculty advisor Sharepoint site. The site provides advisors immediate access to new and updated advising information when they need it. This site also includes live links to forms, policies, educational planning materials, and documents that all advisors need. 


Students utilize MySeattleU Student Planning tool for all academic planning and registration functions. This includes accessing their program evaluations, viewing their schedules, searching and registering for classes, and creating 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.

Advisors can access additional training regarding the use of MySeattleU Student Planning in the CAS Faculty Advisor Sharepoint site

Advising Notes and Alerts

Seattle University is transitioning away from Redhawk SOAR (Student Outreach Advising & Retention). Beginning in January 2024, faculty and staff can submit a student alert using the Slate for Student Success alert form.

Faculty and staff members can use this alert to notify the Office of Student Persistence and/or the Office of the Dean of students when a student is struggling in their class or may need additional forms of support.  

Faculty members may utilize Redhawk SOAR to save advising notes for a student. To review guidelines for academic alerts and advising notes, please review the Redhawk SOAR page within the CAS Faculty Advisor SharePoint site.

Dual Advising Model

In order to improve retention and overall student experience, the College of Arts and Sciences has implemented a Dual Advising Model. For their first and second years, most 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. Third and fourth year students are assigned to a faculty advisor in their major department/program.

ASAC Liaison Responsibilities

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.

Not sure who to contact in the ASAC? 

Please connect with the ASAC during our regular business hours using the chat feature.
