Personalized advising is an important part of the List College academic experience. Each List College student is paired with a dean who works closely with them, tracking their progress throughout their time in the program.

Your Advisor Will:

  • Maintain your academic file.
  • Give final approval for your JTS course registration each semester.
  • Advise you on core requirements and placement.
  • Approve courses taken at other universities.
  • Assist you in keeping track of your progress toward completing your requirements for graduation.
