Advising & Student Success

After reserving admission, each new student receives a Student Success Representative. Please plan to communicate with your Student Success Representative each semester before registering for classes to check in regarding your degree program progress and discuss scheduling options. 

Your Student Success Representative provides guidance about your program progress and logistics, and also serves as your advocate throughout your studies. Your Student Success Representative will initiate communication with you as soon as your student account has been created, and will schedule a Welcome Call with you. Your Student Success Representatives are not only staff members, they are current students who know what it takes to succeed at Gordon-Conwell.
