College of Undergraduate Studies

The Office of Academic Advisement


The Office of Academic Advisement offers help with class attendance issues, dropping/adding courses; off-campus and summer school study; declaration of majors and minors; cross-registration at SEPCHE (Southeastern Pennsylvania Consortium for Higher Education) schools; as well as general academic advice and direction.

  • Undeclared Major Advisement: Students who have not chosen a major receive preregistration and course sequence advice from the Office of Academic Advisement.
  • Class Attendance: Each student is expected to exercise reasonable judgment regarding class attendance and is accountable for all work missed because of absence. For students who are absent due to medical or other emergencies, the student must contact the director of Academic Advisement.
  • Declaration of Major: A student in the College of Undergraduate Studies should declare a field of concentration in the second semester of freshman year during Declaration of Major week (generally held during the last week of March). The student files an official declaration of major request directly to the department which will determine eligibility for study. 
  • Off-Campus/Summer Study: Students may not earn more than (18) credit hours in the time span of a summer, nor may they take courses without permission of the department chair. Students in the College of Undergraduate Studies may take courses in the summer at approved colleges only with the permission of the director of Academic Advisement. Necessary forms for off-campus enrollment may be obtained  in the Academic Advisement office. 

For transfer of credits earned at colleges other than Immaculata University, a grade of C or better is required. Please be aware that courses for some majors require a grade higher than a C, and students who plan to study off-campus or at Immaculata University during the summer should seek advisement from their departmental advisor prior to registration. 

Students in the College of Undergraduate Studies have the opportunity to cross-register for courses at any of the eight colleges in the Southeastern Pennsylvania Consortium for Higher Education (SEPCHE) institutions. These institutions are:

  • Cabrini College
  • Chestnut Hill College
  • Gwynedd-Mercy College
  • Holy Family University
  • Neumann University
  • Rosemont College

All courses taken at another institution must be approved by the department.
