Advising: A Shared Responsibility

Peer Advisor Logo

You are responsible for knowing all academic regulations that affect your program and for completing all degree requirements of the University, the Leavey School of Business, and your major department. Failure to understand these regulations and requirements does not relieve you of your responsibility.

Your partners

You have several partners to help you understand academic requirements and to help you make decisions to maintain your progress to completion of your business degree:

Your advising team

If you are a first year-student in the Leavey School of Business, you have access to an advising porfolio containing advising and program information. The portfolio contains, requirement checklists, course planning worksheets and other information also found in this section of the Undergraduates website. Contact the Undergraduate Business Programs office for information on your portfolio.

Your academic advisor

You are assigned a specific faculty member as your academic advisor. This faculty member is your primary resource for information and assistance on curricular planning and program choice. You must meet with your faculty advisor during the May advising period, unless you have petitioned to graduate. (If you are a first-year student, you'll meet with your assigned Peer Advisor.)

Your LSB peer advisor

A team of business students, trained and knowledgeable about LSB requirements, can show you how to use Santa Clara's many advising resources and materials, especially in your first year. You can contact to ask a question or schedule an appointment. More about Your Peer Advisors here »
