Academic support

Your path to graduation starts here

Academic advisors are here to help you succeed throughout your journey as a student. Advisors can help you make strategic and informed decisions that are personalized to your individual goals and needs.

You can find your academic advisor by visiting My ASU and viewing “Academic Support Team” on the right-hand side of the screen or you can explore the advising teams assigned to each program below.
