Who is My Advisor?

All Saint Louis University students are assigned a primary academic advisor. Additionally, students will be assigned a SLU-Madrid faculty mentor based on their chosen second major, minor or concentration.

Academic advisors and mentors are important resources for 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, and for general advice.

Visiting Students 

Sam Manka is the designated academic advisor for visiting-student support. He can be contacted at Students studying abroad at SLU-Madrid should also maintain close contact with their home university advisor, especially when choosing and changing classes. SLU-Madrid advising does not validate registration changes — it is each student's responsibility to confirm any changes to their schedules with their home university.
