Academic Advising

The Department of Computing Sciences provides a team of academic advisors for each class level (see below). Students work with the same advising team throughout their years here at Villanova. This approach allows the advisors to learn the needs and situations of individual students effectively.

Students may visit any member of their advising team, and are encouraged to do so whenever questions arise regarding course requirements, transfer credit, academic challenges, career counseling, or graduate school.

Students will meet with an advisor at least once each semester to plan the next semester's courses and receive the Registration Code that will allow them to register for classes through Novasis.
