Advising and Academic Excellence

The Decker Division of Advising and Academic Excellence supports prospective and enrolled undergraduate and graduate students as they explore and pursue program options.

Our professional advising staff is available to guide students from pre-admission through graduation. In addition to professional staff, Decker peer advisors have extensive training and are regularly available to answer students' questions quickly and efficiently. Collaboratively, we help students understand admission requirements, orient to their program of study, establish a relationship with their assigned faculty advisor and progress to graduation in a timely fashion.

The well-being of our students is our top priority, and we strive to provide a safe and comfortable environment.

If you have a felony or child abuse conviction

Students who have a felony or child abuse conviction are advised that their prior criminal history may impede their ability to complete the requirements of the Decker School of Nursing and/or to meet licensure requirements for nursing or advanced practice licensure. If you have concerns about this, you are advised to contact the Decker Advising and Academic Excellence Office, the undergraduate or graduate program director or the Dean's Office. You are required to report felony convictions while enrolled in the Decker College of Nursing and Health Sciences as it may change your progression and ability to be placed in a clinical agency. To learn if felony/child abuse convictions will negatively impact your ability for licensure, check with the State Board of Nursing in the state in which you plan to practice.
