All Juniata students have the benefit of two types of academic advisors during their academic careers at Juniata:  a primary advisor in their Program of Emphasis (POE) and a general advisor from another discipline who provides a different perspective. Advisors help students navigate their educational journey, serving as a guide in the process of choosing classes, designing POEs, connecting with high-impact learning opportunities such as internships and study abroad, and preparing for a fulfilling and successful career.

Advisor Assignment and Selection

The QUEST staff, in consultation with faculty department chairs, assigns each new student either a POE advisor, if the student has selected an area of study, or a general advisor, if the student is exploratory or undecided. The second advisor is chosen by the student during their second semester at Juniata. Students also may switch advisors at any time if they change POEs or just make a connection with a particular advisor.

To select or change advisors, complete and submit the Advisor Selection Form to the Registrar's Office, located on the second floor of Founders Hall.

Academic Planning Worksheet

The Advising Planning Sheet is a tool for students and advisors to use to track a student's progress in meeting graduation requirements and planning a student's academic career.
