Academic Advising Services

Academic advising is available through the School of Graduate, Professional & Continuing Education (SGPCE) for all adult students enrolled at the University through the Alliance between McDonald’s and Lewis University. Once a new student is formally admitted to a degree program, the student is assigned an academic advisor who will provide information and guidance regarding the degree plans, course schedules, registration processes, student support services, academic policies and procedures, etc. The academic advisor can also assist the student in developing and evaluating the progress toward an educational plan consistent with their life and career goals and objectives.

Academic advising services for Lewis University adult students are delivered in a convenient, expedient, and personalized manner. In 2005, the American Council on Education (ACE) approved the application of Hamburger University coursework to be considered for 46 college credit hours by accredited degree-granting colleges and universities. Each college and university involved in the initiative will determine those ACE recommended courses which are equivalent and transferable for a degree program at their institution. Utilized by corporations, labor unions, professional and volunteer organizations, schools, government agencies and training suppliers, ACE provides course equivalency information to facilitate credit award decisions. The student is responsible for submitting official copies of all transcripts of credits earned for consideration according to the current enrollment and admission policies of the University at the time of application.

Academic advising services are coordinated by an SGPCE academic advisor by appointment on-site at all five Lewis University campuses, and also by phone and e-mail.
