Student Resources

Welcome to Academic Advising! As an integral part of the Robert and Mary Cox Compass Center, we provide a variety of resources to students and faculty. Advising offers a personal and professional experience to enrich and shape your future. It’s the foundation of Your Drury Fusion.

Advisors can:

  • Assist you in choosing credentials (major/minor/certificate) that reflect personal goals, values, and interests.
  • Help you choose appropriate courses during registration.
  • Guide you through creating a graduation plan and understanding graduation requirements.
  • Help you add, drop, and withdraw from courses, if needed.
  • Clarify university policies, procedures, and deadlines.
  • Instruct you on using online resources such as MyDrury and Moodle.
  • Provide referrals to other helpful Drury resources.
  • Ease your transition to Drury and navigate issues that impact your academic performance.

If you have questions or concerns about anything you see here or something else, come see us!
