Academic Advising


The academic advising at Saint Louis University-Madrid Campus is considered a very important aspect of the educational experience. Students work closely with advisors throughout their time at SLU. Our advisors are a tool for our students when choosing classes, deciding upon a major, and transitioning into life after graduation.

Goals of Academic Advising

  • To assist students in their understanding of academic requirements 
  • To nurture intellectual maturation and self-confidence 
  • To encourage students to take an active role in the advisement process

Role of Academic Advising

  • Aid students in developmental transitions, especially from secondary school to college
  • Plan and approve course registration for students
  • Clarify the program/curriculum requirements particularly as they relate to the Jesuit model of education and the Five Dimensions
  • Introduce the students to resources for academic and career success

Components of our Advising Model

  • The First- and Second- Year Advisor supports individualized educational planning and encourages strategies for academic and transitional success.
  • Faculty Advisors (for students who have completed 59 credit hours) continue to help with educational planning and also offer a disciplinary perspective on identifying students’ interests and information on specific majors and careers.
  • The Career Counselor helps students to identify career options and to obtain internships/work experience in those fields.
  • Students are responsible for active participation in the advising process.

Through collaboration with all aspects of the advising process, students achieve the support needed for successful transition, academic success, and choice of major and career.

The Academic Advising Office is located in San Ignacio Hall, third floor.
