The academic advising program at University of Jamestown is designed to assist you with developing educational plans that are compatible with your goals.

Each incoming first-year student is assigned a faculty adviser. This faculty member will be available to answer any questions you have about your academic program during your first semester and to help you plan your courses for the following semester.

First-year students are also registered for Journey 101. This course includes:

  • sessions to assist you in understanding the general education requirements
  • determining the proper sequencing of courses for majors/minors
  • planning your specific course schedule


Remember, academic advising is essential in helping you to meet your educational objectives.
