Academic Advising

While you are responsible for planning your academic program and meeting requirements, you will have an academic advisor to provide assistance in designing your academic program. All first-year students are advised by the Associate Academic Dean for Advising, Dr. Paul Johnson. Transfer students are advised by a professor within their major field of study.

The University believes that every student who is admitted for study has the ability to succeed. A UD education is designed to be a bridge to your future – grounded in the liberal arts and developed through rigorous professional preparation. As a Christian university, we understand that college is about building a life of meaning:  discovering and developing your God-given gifts and discerning opportunities to make a difference in the world.

This journey of discovery, personal development, and discernment is not traveled alone. Your academic advisor is a key traveling companion offering knowledge and experience that guides your learning as you move along the road from first-year student to graduating senior. It is a journey of discipline and hard work, but one that is full of rewards as well.

Welcome to the adventure of becoming a life-long learner!
