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 or academic 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 Athletics reports to the Office of the Provost and acts as a liaison between the campus community and the Department of Athletics.
