Your academic adviser is your personal guide to SCS who will help you throughout your studies at Tulane. Your adviser will consult on course selection, evaluate transfer credits, and – when the time comes – certify that you've earned a Tulane degree.
Advisers are available by appointment; most welcome walk-ins during busy times. You should see your adviser before registering for the first time as well as continuing to seek advice on academic issues throughout the semester. Advisers are problem-solvers who bring their experience with working adults in an academic setting to bear to help you.
SHARYN ORR Academic Adviser
"Students have remained pretty much the same over the years – just the attire and outward appearance have changed. The freshmen come in totally overwhelmed by the experience and expectations. They leave via graduation with anticipation and excitement for their new lives out in the world. I especially enjoy the experience of working with the 18–22 year-old-students. As I tell them, there isn't much I have not heard or seen; they really can't throw me for a loop, but they do try. When they leave me, they are no longer 'kids.' I love seeing them grow and develop into mature men and women."
