Student / Adviser Responsibilities

Students and advisers each play a key role in ensuring a smooth path to graduation. We plan to work hard for our students, and we hope that students will feel equally good about working hard for their own goals.

We see this as a shared process, where student and adviser play a part, where students may expect things from their adviser, and where advisers may expect things from their advisee, some of which is noted below. We look forward to working with you as you begin your academic career at Iona College.
