Academic Advising in the SSC

Advising during Campus Closure

Students can access their SSC Academic Advisor either by phone, email, or online platforms such as Skype/Teams during the suspension of on-campus classes. Students can find out who their Academic Advisor is in Self-Service. Additionally, students can make an appointment by visiting our Schedule and Advising Appointment page. Appointments cannot be made less than 24 hours in advance.

Please contact your SSC Academic Advisor with any questions or comments. Students who have an assigned faculty advisor are encouraged to contact their faculty advisor. However, students can seek additional academic advising support from the SSC. 


Academic Advising in the Student Success Center (SSC) supports students in creating four-year plans for graduation. Our advisors work with students to integrate their interests, values, and academic and professional goals into these plans. We assist students in considering all the different major and minor options at Bellarmine and can recommend out-of-class opportunities that will integrate their personal interests, as well as academic and professional goals. Examples of out-of-class opportunities are internships, learning abroad, student research, and much more.

Our advising team also partners with the Career Development Center to support the major and career exploration process. Course catalogs, class schedules, and academic policies and procedures can be found at the Registrar's Office.

Mission Statement for Academic Advising in the SSC

Through collaborative relationships, the SSC academic advisors create and implement academic, personal and career plans to foster success at Bellarmine University and beyond.
