At AUP, you will work closely with academic advisors who can help you with many things, including major and course selections, transfer credit and substitutions (if needed), scheduling, study abroad options and much more. AUP is small enough that we will know you by name and will remember your personal needs and interests. We are all personally invested in your learning goals and your timely graduation. We will also encourage you to link your academic interests with appropriate co-curricular and internship experiences so as to enrich your AUP education and to align it with exciting career options. We are here to help!
