Academic Advisors Program
The Academic Advisement Program provides each student with personal
attention as he or she proceeds through a degree program. Advisors
monitor and assist students in their program of study, course
selection, academic standing and other scholastic matters to help
each student achieve their objectives.
Each student must understand that the responsibility for arranging
an appropriate program and for meeting all degree requirements
rests on them. Academic advisement is offered to assist students in
meeting this responsibility.
Special Assessment Program
St. John’s University understands that learning extends
beyond the classroom. For this reason, a College of Professional
Studies student may be awarded academic credit for knowledge which
is determined to be equivalent to that required in the degree
course. Such knowledge may have come through work, in-service
training programs, independent study, reading and research, travel
or other lifetime endeavors.
To qualify for Special Assessment academic credit, a candidate
must be a mature person with a level of theoretical and practical
knowledge appropriate to the program of study for the intended
degree. The student must have completed a minimum of twelve
semester hours of credit with a C average in coursework offered by
the University, and must be a matriculated student in a degree
program of the College of Professional Studies. Students will be
required to complete one or a combination of the following methods
of assessment: written examination (standardized tests); internal
examination; portfolio and oral examinations.
Students wishing additional information should obtain the Special
Assessment packet of information at the College office.
