Who is My Advisor?

All Saint Louis University students will be assigned a primary academic advisor. Additionally, students will be assigned a secondary academic advisor based upon their chosen second major, minor or concentration.

Academic advisors can be a wonderful asset to you while you study at SLU-Madrid. You should work closely with them to develop your schedule each semester, to plan for the upcoming semesters, to obtain your PIN for online registration and for general advice.

Visiting students are welcome to consult with any advisor here, but should also maintain close contact with their home university advisor, especially when choosing and changing classes.
