Here for your success

CUAA academic advising mission statement

Academic Advising at Concordia University empowers the intellectual, spiritual, and personal growth of all students by providing comprehensive support toward the development, implementation, and fulfillment of vocational goals.

About academic advising at CUAA

Whether you’re an incoming freshman or nearing your final semester, your Academic Advisor is here to help. We want you to succeed – in school and life. That’s why we’ll help you establish educational goals, navigate coursework, and tackle any obstacles that may come up. If we can’t help you, we’ll put you in touch with the resources you need to reach success.

Connect with your advisor

We don’t have a centralized office, because we’re always out “in the field,” serving students across campus. But we want to connect you with the best advisor for your needs. Let’s start by having you tell us which type of student you are:

Traditional undergraduate

CUAA's Academic Advising Office helps you plan your program of study that fits the vision you have for your future. Our programs encourage intellectual and spiritual development, self-knowledge and the professional skills you’ll need to succeed. As a degree-seeking student, you’ll be assigned a faculty or professional advisor during your first term.

ACADEMIC ADVISING – AN EDUCATIONAL PARTNERSHIP

As a degree-seeking student, you’ll be assigned a faculty or professional advisor just before the start of your first term.

  • If you’ve declared a major, you’ll be assigned an advisor within your area or department of study

Graduate students

Academic Advising is divided programmatically; therefore please reach out to your Department for advising assistance. Your assigned Advisor can be found on the portal under the "Student" tab.

Academic coaching & support

Here’s our goal: to turn out graduates who are competent, Christ-centered servant leaders in whatever profession they choose. And the truth is, the programs and curricula at CUW are rigorous. It’s one thing to have the desire to take on such a challenge, but don’t worry if you need more tools to help you handle such an advanced level of coursework. That’s why we’re here. And that’s why we developed three programs: PROSPER, STAR, and FAST.

PROSPER, STAR & FAST programs

“Providing Resources and Opportunities for Student Performance, Engagement, and Retention,” is the program, but we prefer “PROSPER,” because that’s what it can help you do. This academic coaching program is designed for new students. We’ll meet with you weekly for one-on-one meetings and help you develop 16 critical academic skills, like time-management skills, study strategies, and academic resilience.

STAR (Striving Towards Academic Recovery) is geared toward students facing academic difficulty, and it takes a similar approach. Through academic coaching and/or a series of workshops, we can help you develop many of the academic tools you need to succeed.

Then there’s FAST, the Falcon Academic Support Team. This is an academic early-alert program that teams with faculty and staff to identify and intervene with students facing academic difficulty. We’ll work with you to connect you with the appropriate resources and overcome those challenges.
