Academic Advising (Undergraduate)

The Academic Advisement Center is located in the Student Success Center in Huber Hall. To schedule an appointment with your advisor, or speak to a member of the Center’s staff, please call: 880-2227. More information is available through the Center’s web site:

Our Mission: The mission of the Academic Advisement Center is to provide our students with direction and support to achieve their academic goals. The Advisement Center staff works cooperatively with our students and other College offices to help resolve any issues or problems that may impede academic progress.

Academic Advisors are available both day and evening hours on weekdays to provide a wide variety of academic advisement services. Advice on common academic questions is available on a walk-in basis.

Students are assigned an Academic Advisor upon acceptance to the College. All new students will have an Academic Advisor from the Academic Advisement Center/Student Success Center. 

Each student is required to meet with his or her Academic Advisor to plan a spring and fall class schedule. Questions regarding schedule changes, academic policies, and program requirements should also be directed to the Academic Advisors in the Center. The Medaille College advising system does not operate in isolation. It is, rather, an intricate system in which all constituencies in the College have an active role in assisting students throughout their academic career at the College. Academic Advisors and support staff in the Advisement Center work closely with faculty and student support offices such as the Registrar’s Office, Financial Aid, Residence Life, Career Planning and Placement, and Student Services to ensure that students have a rewarding experience at Medaille College.

The Advisement Center coordinates the collection and distribution of Academic Warning Reports for at-risk students. Faculty members submit completed Academic Warning Reports online and as needed throughout the semester if a student is performing below a C- in the course. Advisors follow up with students regarding their performance. A comprehensive report is generated each week of all academic warnings issued by the faculty. The report is available to the Athletic Office, Academic Support Center, Division Heads, the Vice President of Student Development, and the student’s Academic Advisor for appropriate follow-up.

Degree Completion Planning

Note: This policy applies to students in ALP/MOE programs.

Degree completion planning allows the ALP/MOE student to create a plan that enables him/her to complete all degree requirements in a timely manner.  All undergraduate students are required to ascertain what general education requirements, liberal arts and sciences electives, and general elective requirements have been met.  It is the responsibility of the student to make appointments with his/her advisor to assess status toward graduation.  Students should schedule their mandatory advisement session prior to or during their first course to complete the Educational Goal Plan.  Students must schedule a mandatory advisement session midway through their program. Failure to do so may result in a delayed graduation date.

A Student Services/Advisement Counselor will assist the student in the development of an Educational Goal Plan and explain all available options for earning credits toward the degree requirements.  Options include supplemental courses and programs offered at Medaille College, national testing programs, unique offerings at other colleges, and assessment of prior documented and experiential learning.  The purpose of educational goal planning is to assist students in selecting those options which are most appropriate for attaining a degree.

Program/Course Registration

Note: This policy applies to ALP/MOE students only.

ALP/MOE students are registered for all courses within a specific program.  No auditing of courses is allowed.  A student who fails to participate in or complete any course for which he or she registered will receive an "F" and be billed for the course. In order to prevent such action, the student must be placed on an official leave of absence or officially withdraw from the program. Student forms are available online at\registrar. To prevent being billed for a class the student must request an official leave of absence before the first class meeting. Waivers must be requested at least four weeks prior to the start of the waived course.

Registration for Additional Courses

Note: This policy applies to ALP/MOE students only.

If a student needs additional credits in order to fulfill his/her degree completion requirements, he/she may register for ALP elective courses.  Registration must be completed at least three weeks prior to the first night of class.  Registration forms are available from Student Services.  Students must schedule an advisement session with Student Services before registering for additional courses.
