Academic Counseling & Advising

Academic advisors/counselors serve as mentors to help you meet your academic goals and enhance your learning objectives. Ideally, the counselor/advisor serves as a guide in an interactive partnership aimed at enhancing the student's experience.

Students are assigned a specific academic advisor by programs of study; you can schedule an appointment through our student success network via uSucceed.  

They advise you on degree requirements, academic standing, minors, course registration, full-time enrollment and more.

uSucceed

Students at the university have a personal My Success Network of faculty and academic counselors/advisors which they can view in their Success Network in uSucceed (accessed through jwuLink). Members of the Success Network work with students throughout their academic career.

The Success Network found on uSucceed is an online communication system that connects students to a network of support and the resources needed to be successful at JWU. Academic counselors/advisors, faculty, faculty advisors, financial planners and various support staff make up a student's Success Network.

The goal of using the uSucceed Success Network is to make it easy for students to communicate and connect with their network of support. Students can use the scheduling tool in their Success Network to make appointments with members of their Success Network. They are also able to track their academic progress. Faculty are able to raise flags to let students know they may need additional support, and inform students how and where to find additional support. Faculty can also issue kudos to congratulate students on their successes.

HOW TO SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT WITH A MEMBER OF MY SUCCESS NETWORK?

  1. Login to jwuLink > go to the Academics page > open uSucceed.
  2. In the Success Network area, locate the name of the individual you are looking to meet with.
  3. Follow instructions to schedule a meeting with them - watch our quick uSucceed video.
