Graduate Advising and Sample Plans

Advising Overview

Each student is assigned an academic advisor once they start at Seattle University. There is a three-week advising period during the middle of each quarter where students are strongly encouraged to meet with their advisors to discuss their plan for the following quarter. Students can also meet with their advisors outside of the advising period.
