Student Advising Services

Special attention is given to particular categories of students: at-risk, transfer, first-year, international, and exploratory.

Academic Advising at Spring Hill College


Academic Advisor Assignments

All students will be assigned an academic advisor in their department. All academic advisors are faculty members who teach in the discipline. Students can access information about their advisor, including email, by navigating to the Academics Tab on BadgerWeb. Should a student wish to change to a different advisor, they will submit the Major/Minor/Advisor Change Form. In some situations approval from the Department Chair will be required to change advisors.


Obtaining Registration Clearance

Each semester students must obtain registration clearance from their assigned academic advisor. Each advisor will have their own way of scheduling advising appointments. Students should reach out to their assigned advisor directly prior to registration.


Declaring an Academic Major

It a recommended that a student declare their academic major by the end of their Sophomore Year. For some programs, it is recommended that a student declare earlier so that they are able to complete all program requirements. Students can declare or change their major using the Major/Minor/Advisor Change Form.
