Academic Assistance

It is highly suggested that all students keep an open line of communication with their professional advisor in CASAS during the freshman and sophomore years.

Professional Advisors offer personalized advising for residential freshmen, sophomores, first-semester transfer students, students in academic difficulty, Club Sports and NCAA student-athletes.

Your advisor may be contacted with all questions concerning general education courses, graduation timelines, and correlating course requirements. Upon reaching junior status, students should contact their faculty advisor within the School of Music. For more information about faculty advising, or if you have general questions, please contact som@liberty.edu.
