Academic Advising

Academic Advising

The Office of Academic Advising facilitates individualized advising for students in all different stages of life and academic tracks.  We assign faculty or professional academic advisors in each field of study, we advise undeclared majors, and provide administrative and advising support to traditional-age students and their advisors.

We also manage academic discipline and classroom conduct disputes.  We support the Offices of the President and Provost on academic advising or academic policy inquiries.

Academic advising is an important part of the La Verne Experience.

We are proud institutional members of NACADA.

Adult and Graduate Advising at Regional and Online Campuses

Academic advising for adult students (CAPA, Regional Campus and La Verne Online) begins on the student’s first visit to the regional campus or military center.  Students work closely with an academic advisor in selecting a major and choosing courses each term that best suits their degree and career plans.  A professional academic advisor is available for every student.  For further information please contact the regional campus or military center of your choice (listed below).
