Your academic advisor is your personal guide to SCS who will help you throughout your studies at Tulane. Your advisor will consult on course selection, evaluate transfer credits, and – when the time comes – certify that you've earned a Tulane degree.

Advisors are available by appointment; most welcome walk-ins during busy times. You should see your advisor before registering for the first time as well as continuing to seek advice on academic issues throughout the semester. Advisors are problem-solvers who bring their experience to help working adults in an academic setting.
