Academic Support for Athletics

Our mission in the Office of Academic Support for Athletics is to provide supplemental academic support for all varsity student-athletes at Villanova University in a manner that addresses their unique academic needs. 

Each student-athlete receives primary academic advising from the assigned faculty advisor in his or her home college. Academic progress will be monitored constantly to ensure that NCAA and University rules and regulations are met and progress is being made towards graduation. The Office of Academic Support for Atheltics reports to the Office of the Provost and acts as a liaison between the campus community and the Department of Athletics.

The Tutorial Assistance Program and the Mentoring Program are services provided by the Office of Academic Support for Athletics to promote the academic success of all student-athletes.
