Academic Advising / Faculty Office Hours

Good planning is a key ingredient for academic success. In order to promote good planning, each student is assigned a Faculty Advisor. Students work closely with Faculty Advisors to develop a schedule of classes and activities that will best help in the achievement of academic goals. Faculty Advisors also assist students in choosing a major area of study and fulfilling the College’s graduation requirements. Advisors are assigned by the Registrar on the basis of the student’s academic and professional interests and intended major. A student who wishes to change his or her Faculty Advisor may obtain a Change of Academic Student Status form for this purpose from the Registrar.

Tutoring

Tutoring is available to Alice Lloyd College students. Each semester, a list of trained tutors is compiled by the professors to help struggling students with various classes. Tutoring is done on a one-to-one basis by fellow students and faculty and in group sessions arranged by instructors and the Coordinator of Tutorial Services. Regular meetings with a counselor and tutoring are part of the special assistance required for students on academic probation.
