Academic Advising

Academic & Career Advising (ACA) offers a full range of academic support services for current and future Forest Grove undergraduate Pacific University students. 

Current Undergraduate Students

Students pursuing an undergraduate degree on the Forest Grove campus are required to meet with a professional advisor or their faculty academic advisor at least once per semester prior to class registration. Professional staff advisors in ACA are available by appointment to help you with academic planning, declaring your major, connecting your majors to careers, and helping you with schedule changes.

We've created the Advising Handbook for you to compare majors/minors, graduate schools, career planning information, and a list of rotating new/special topics courses including travel courses. The Registrar's Office publishes information about the Advising and Registration Cycle including dates and policies about waitlists. 

Academic coaching is available to current Forest Grove undergraduate students to enhance your college skills and academic performance. In addition to the support you'll receive from your faculty advisor we are available to discuss optimal pathways to graduation including offering an unofficial graduation check. 

You can also find advising forms and submit them electronically to us for processing. 

Future Students and Transferring to Pacific

Professional ACA advisors are available to answer questions on our Forest Grove undergraduate programs about transfer credits, AP/IB credits, and to help you choose classes to take prior to transferring to Pacific University. Please review the list of our available transfer guides and contact us if you have questions about schools not listed. Whether you are an incoming first year student from high school or transferring to Pacific, see the steps you'll take as a new student ahead of your first semester class registration.
