General Advising

The University of Portland offers a number of supports for advice on academic schedules and future planning. All students are assigned a faculty advisor to help make decisions about their specific area of study and course selection within their major. The Shepard Academic Resource Center knows your academic decisions sometimes come with different twists and turns that require additional consultation. Whether you want help getting started with the advising process, start to question your major, wonder if you can double or triple major, wish to incorporate study abroad, want to discuss your transition into college, or have any other questions, make an appointment with one of our staff in Buckley Center 101.
