We are passionate about developing meaningful relationships that help support our students during their time at Multnomah University. Once a student is accepted, they are assigned an academic advisor and a faculty/program advisor. Each advisor plays a very different and incredibly valuable role as a guide along each student’s individual journey at MU.
Freshman: First-time freshmen are assigned a Freshman Advisor for their first two semesters at Multnomah. This advisor helps new students in the following areas:
Transition into College Life at Multnomah
Advises students on their program layouts — the map for their adventure at Multnomah acts as a one-stop resource to educate students on the tools available to them during their time at Multnomah.
Transfer: If a student has earned college credit after high school graduation, they are assigned to an advisor in the Office of the Registrar. This advisor will assist the student in mapping out the rest of their time in college, so they maximize their time and cross the finish line of their educational journey at graduation.
Sophomores: Once a new student has completed their first two semesters of academic advising, they are encouraged to bring any further questions they might have about their academic plan to the Office of the Registrar.
Junior-Seniors: The Office of the Registrar will reach out to students at the beginning of their junior year to review the student’s final semesters in college and to affirm the student is still on track for graduation. The Registrar’s Department continues to be an advising resource through the student’s senior year. As the student prepares for graduation, they will receive regular contact from the Office of the Registrar communicating important events, deadlines, and information regarding graduation.
Multnomah Online students are assigned a Success Coach who will be available to assist them throughout their time at Multnomah.
Seminary and Graduate students are assigned a faculty advisor related to their degree track when they begin their studies. They are encouraged to contact their faculty advisor with questions related to their program. All other questions regarding their course registration should be directed to the Office of the Registrar.
Faculty/program advisors are assigned to on-campus students based on the student’s intended program/major. The student is encouraged to reach out to their faculty/program advisor if they have questions about their major or area of study.
