Academic Advisors

You will be assigned an academic advisor. This will be a faculty member who will meet with you before you register each term.  It is highly recommended that you see this faculty member as a resource for questions and concerns on an ongoing basis.   Advisors have office hours and most make themselves available by appointment, as well.

Advice from any faculty member can also be sought. In the US academic structure, visiting a professor is not a shameful thing to  do and is something that is encouraged of students.  

As a matter of fact, many professors like students to come during their office hours to discuss  assignments or course topics. This can help you to do better in the class, and is also conducive to building good relationships with your mentors.


US immigration regulations are complex and change frequently.  The University strives to maintain a website that is both current and helpful, however, Santa Clara University is not responsible for students maintaining lawful immigration status; this is the responsibility of the student.  Further, resources and links do not constitute endorsement by Santa Clara University.

"I considered minoring in Entrepreneurship, but my advisor advised against it, because it’s a lot of units to take.  I didn’t come in with any extra units.  She said they would make a specialization in entrepreneurship in Engineering for engineers, but they don’t have that yet."
