Academic Success Advising is centralized in the office of Student Experience and Advisors are assigned to students based on their degree program and academic school. You are encouraged to build a relationship with your Student Experience Advisor and connect on a regular basis for guidance and support with your educational goals.
New students, as well as those returning to the University, are encouraged to complete the online orientation program developed by Student Experience. The orientation will introduce you to resources available for academic success and support you in navigating the university experience.
Student Guidance and Advocacy
Student Experience Advisors provide guidance to you with regard to questions and concerns, making connections to resolve problems that may arise. Counseling referrals are available as necessary. Advocacy and advisement for education concerns often times begins in Student Experience. Students should reach out to their academic student experience advisor as the primary point of contact for questions and concerns.
International Student Information
Hodges University is dedicated to your academic success, and to support you in navigating the university experience you will be assigned a designated Student Experience Advisor. The advisors at Hodges University assist students with course selection and educational planning to ensure a successful university experience.
F1 students should refer to the International Students Guide or the Maintain Your Status Homeland Security websites for the information you’ll need to keep your student status. If you have any questions, contact a Designated School Official (DSO) in the Office of Student Experience.
