ADP Academic Advising

Post University’s Academic Success Counselor program is an integral part of the University’s academic support services. It provides each student with personalized and proactive coaching provided by a member of the Advising Team.

Post University’s Academic Advisors and Academic Success Counselors assist students in selecting majors, scheduling courses, and interpreting and fulfilling academic policies and procedures. They also serve as mentors, providing students with practical advice and guidance on how best to achieve their academic, personal and career goals.

Once a student selects a major, the Advising Department assigns a member of the full-time instructional staff to serve as that student’s advisor. The student also may request a specific faculty advisor.

Post University’s Success Counselors assist students in scheduling courses, interpreting and fulfilling academic policies and procedures, as well as providing direction when it comes time to search for internships or a full time job after graduation. These advisors are specialists in their fields and provide students with a real-world view of what to expect once they graduate with their degree.

A student is encouraged to work with both their Academic and Faculty Advisor to ensure success throughout their academic career at Post.

Academic Advising for main campus students is located in Torrance Hall. For general questions, please call 203.596.4539.
