Working with an advisor

At Newman, a faculty advisor from your area of study will be paired with you for the duration of your academic career. This allows your advisor to get to know you on a personal level, so that he or she can learn your unique strengths and needs, and better help you with academic choices and career preparation. Since Newman University advisors are professors, they offer expert guidance and knowledge throughout your educational journey.

Your application for admission is reviewed individually, and a variety of factors are considered in the admissions process. Newman University wants to see a proven track record of academic success and the motivation necessary to complete an undergraduate degree.

Transfer Your Community College Credit Hours to Newman!

Newman welcomes the opportunity to work with community college students to aid in a smooth and efficient transfer of credit hours. Under Newman’s articulation policy, students who come to Newman with an associate of arts or associate of science degree from a regionally accredited two-year college automatically meet all Newman Studies skill and general education requirements, with the exception of three hours of philosophy and three hours of theology which will be evaluated separately, and the Newman Studies Core Courses required of all Newman students. 

If you know you want to attend Newman before you complete your associate’s degree, be sure to check out these course equivalencies and program-specific articulation agreements with various institutions so you know exactly which classes you need to stay on track.
