 Student Support & Advising

^ TOP

 

Saint Joseph’s College understands the unique challenges of learning online, so we have developed a very effective and comprehensive student support system specifically to support all our online learners.

Our Student Support team is an integral component of online learning. It is comprised of a dedicated group of professionals who assist students at every point in their course of study - from initial inquiry and application to receipt of transcripts, selection of courses, accessing all platforms necessary for course content and assignement submission, and graduation. Upon application, an Online Admissions Counselor is assigned to each student to help them through each step of the application process. After enrolling, a Student Support Specialist is assigned to each student and continues to guide them during their entire program of study. They provide academic advising on course selection and program requirements, give direction on administrative policies and procedures, and offer proactive motivational support as needed. These full-time professional advisors work closely with online students in order to help them achieve their personal and professional educational goals.

Students are encouraged to be in frequent communication with their Student Support Specialist to inquire about their program status, enroll in their set of courses, or discuss any concerns about their progress. The Online Student Support team can be reached by calling 800-343-5498 or 207-893-7800.
