Academic Counseling and Advisement
Academic advising at Dominican College is a multifaceted process which enables students to evaluate their strengths, weaknesses, goals, and interests; to select courses and programs which are consistent with their goals; to identify support services and alternatives; and to make informed decisions regarding their college experience and their future.
Academic advisement of students is conducted by members of the teaching faculty. Students ultimately are themselves responsible for being aware of and completing their program requirements, but the faculty are regularly available to them for information, counsel, and support.
Incoming transfer students are counseled regarding academic programs as part of the admissions process and by faculty prior to registration.
Advisors are provided for part-time students in the day, evening, and weekend sessions.
Advisement for masters degree students is provided by the program coordinators.
In the 2008-2010 academic years the College will continue with its comprehensive curriculum assessment program. Selected tests and surveys will be administered to students at various stages in their academic progress. It is expected that students will cooperate in this program, which has as its goal the enrichment of curriculum and college life.
