Frequently Asked Questions

How do I select appropriate courses?
Students are encouraged to review the program requirements in the current issue of the SJU Academic Catalog. The catalog outlines the course requirements for the program and includes information about pre-requisite course requirements. Students should also speak with an academic advisor or department representative if they are unsure about any particular courses.

Where can I seek advising for the program?
After students are admitted to the programs they should meet with the program’s graduate advisor to review their official transcript and develop a sequence for the program. During summer I and summer II, these walk in advising sessions are scheduled from 4:30 pm–6:00 pm., in room 236 in Merion Hall, Maguire Campus. During fall and spring, graduate advising will take place on Monday and Thursday from 4:30-6:00pm, also in room 236 in Merion Hall, Maguire Campus. Prospective students are also encouraged to meet the graduate advisor for initial information about the program requirements.
