Student Support Advising

The role of the student support advisor at Chamberlain University is to enhance the student experience and support student success through proactive, informed and compassionate advising.

Your advisor can assist you with:

  • Course planning
  • Identifying resources to promote academic progression
  • Registration – Registration begins Week 3 of the second session every semester. Students must register for the first and second session at the same time. Students with a clinical, financial or other hold will be unable to register until their hold has been cleared. Students wishing to drop, add or withdraw from a course should contact their student support advisor.
  • Financing questions – If you are using loans to finance your education, it is important you understand your borrowing history and how it will impact your future. To assist you, utilize Financial Tools available on your student portal to help you understand your loan borrowing history, your academic progression in relationship to your aggregate loan limits and the impact of your academic and borrowing decisions on your student loan repayment amount. Visit and select Financial Tools. You will have access to create, monitor and edit an Estimated Financial Plan as you progress through your program.
  • Attendance questions
  • Academic questions

Detailed information regarding all academic policies is available at It is important for students to familiarize themselves with these policies to ensure academic success throughout their program.

Students are encouraged to contact their student support advisor with any questions or needs. Student support advisors may also contact students to increase student awareness of issues that may negatively impact their academic success and to help students identify faculty and college support services to help students successfully complete their course of studies.
