Home > Catalog > Counseling and Student Affairs

The Office of Counseling and Student Affairs oversees extra-curricular activities and assists in creating co-curricular activities. Each of the East-West students is assigned an advisor from that office so there is always someone from the University available to help that student achieve academic, vocational, and career goals, select courses that will lead to progress towards a degree, and discuss university-related or personal problems. Apart from academic advising, counseling is also available from the Student Success Center and the Financial Aid Office.

The staff of the Counseling and Student Affairs Office engage in the following activities:

  • Meet with program directors regularly to ensure continuity for students.
  • Counsel students who have not met the University’s Satisfactory Academic Progress requirement and monitor their success.
  • Participate in assigned University committees.
  • Act as intermediaries between the student body and University personnel, explaining University policies and procedures to the former and bringing student opinions to the latter.
  • Ensure that students are properly advised and are aware of all program requirements, including advising students who plan to transfer credits to East-West University.
  • Coordinate registration activities.
  • Enforce the Student Code of Conduct for the safety and protection of the University community.
  • Organize activities to help students and alumni identify and secure employment, internships and cooperative education activities.
  • Plan and coordinate the graduation ceremony.
