Student and academic advisor in conversation

Academic Advising

Academic advising is an integral part of the educational process in Regis College. It is the intent of this program to provide the student with a faculty advisor who assists the advisee to gain the maximum from their educational experience.

The Academic Advising Program is administered through the Office of the Associate Dean for Regis College. This office serves as a general source of information about campus resources and specialized programs. 

First-Year Advising

Students new to Regis College are advised by their RCC 200 (Writing Analytically) professor for their first year. Because their advisor will also be their faculty member, they are guaranteed regular contact with their advisor, both inside and outside of class.


Second-Year Advising

Many students declare an academic major during their first year. As such, their academic advisor will switch to someone in that department. Students who remain undeclared may be assigned to a new academic advisor for the second year. Students who choose to double major will have a faculty advisor from each area.


Honors Program

Students who are in the Honors Program are advised by the program directors throughout their career at Regis. First-year faculty advisors are given explicit faculty development and support so that they can advise students both in academic matters and extra-curricular concerns.


Pre-Health Sciences

Students who enter Regis as pre-nursing, pre-pharmacy, or pre-health and exercise science, while still having a Regis College professor as an advisor, will also have a pre-health professional advisor. Pre-health advisors are specially trained to work with this group of students to ensure that they are making sufficient academic progress and meeting pre-requisites for admission into those majors.

Advising FAQ

You can find the name of your advisor by logging in to WebAdvisor. On the navigation menu, click on Students, and then chose "Who Am I" from the Academic Profile menu. You can also call the Dean's Office at 303.458.4040 for assistance.

In some majors, earlier decisions are required for timely completion of designated pre-requisites. The programs in Accounting, Business Administration, Computer Science, Economics, Education and the natural sciences require careful planning in order to fulfill all requirements in four years. Students who have completed 45 or more semester hours at the time of registration must complete an online Major Declaration form in WebAdvisor.

We always recommend consulting your advisor if you have any concerns about your course load, prerequisites or degree plan. With that in mind, students register themselves for classes using WebAdvisor and do not need explicit permission or clearance from an advisor. 

If you are having trouble registering for a class, there may be a hold or a flag on your account. A hold on your account may be due to the fact that you need to meet with your advisor to register for class, we need updated information, or because you have a tuition payment due. Please call the Academic Records and Registration office at 303.458.4126 or 800.568.8932 for assistance.
