Congratulations and Welcome to SCU!

On behalf of the John B. Drahmann Academic Advising and Learning Resources Center, welcome to Santa Clara University!

The Drahmann Center is home for undergraduate academic advising and provides academic support in collaboration with assigned faculty advisors. We are one of the main resources for all things Santa Clara. We are equipped to discuss the process of advising and registration, Core Curriculum, and major and minor course planning. We also provide academic learning resources and tutoring services. 

Drahmann Academic Advising 

The information provided below is intended for students who are committed to attending Santa Clara for the upcoming academic year.

The next step for students committed to attending Santa Clara will be to sign up for an academic advising and enrollment session.

Academic advising and enrollment sessions will be held online and will serve as an opportunity for students to work with summer academic advisors to register for fall term classes. All students are required to attend and participate in an academic advising and enrollment session.

We look forward to connecting throughout the summer and are excited to work with students during their academic advising and enrollment session.

 Math Advance Pilot Program

Students who take the CRE by June 15, 2022 will be considered for the Math Advance pilot program. Math Advance is a free 3 week online program offered this August to help a small group of students get off to a strong start in their university math sequence, and to make some human connections with experienced SCU math student partners before the school year begins. There are two sections of Math Advance. Math Advance Calculus is designed for students who are just short of the cutoff for being eligible to take calculus in the fall, and will help bring those students over the threshold. Math Advance Precalculus is designed for students who will be taking Precalculus in the fall, but could benefit from some extra practice and instruction in skills and concepts from high school math. More details can be found at the Math/CS department web page.

For any questions on the Math Advance Pilot Program please contact Linda Burks,, or Josh Grice,
