Academic Advising


Helping students chart their courses

Rivier's academic advisors help students plan their courses of study, assist students in evaluating core requirements, choose courses based on major programs of study, and assist with any scheduling or coursework issues that may arise.

This downloadable Student Resource Guide provides a helpful reference for advising and other student services.
