Who is my assigned academic advisor

All students receive an email notification in their email account during the second week of each semester from the Director of the Advisement & Student Service Center informing them of their advisor’s name and contact information.

Is Advisement required?

Yes, advisement is mandatory for all students prior to registering for classes for the following semester. In addition, students who are new to Trocaire must meet with their Student Service Advisor within the first month of the semester. All students are encouraged to meet with their advisor at any time throughout the semester when they need assistance.

When should I meet my advisor?
