Academic Advising

Academic advising at DePaul helps students achieve their educational, personal and career goals by providing guidance and assistance in the decision-making process. Academic advising is most effective when all participants anticipate their future needs, commit to the process, do their part and then reflect on their results. Students should work closely with their advisors to plan workable educational goals, to understand the degree options and requirements, to understand the financial implications of their decisions, to assess their strengths and challenges as scholars, and to clarify realistic career objectives for themselves upon graduation.

Students with a language major will be assigned a faculty advisor in their language program. Faculty advisors are full-time tenured/tenure-track faculty who serve as mentors to students in their respective language fields. A staff advisor is also assigned to declared language majors. Staff advisors assist with technical/logistical needs such as degree progress, class scheduling and navigating university resources, in addition to assistance with educational, personal and career goals.
