Dual Advising

The purpose of the dual advising program is to give students enrolled at a community college the opportunity to access academic advising and/or academic success coaching with Friends University staff throughout the completion of their associate’s program in preparation for transferring to Friends to complete a bachelor’s degree. The goal of the program is to provide a seamless transition for students transferring from partner schools by providing support throughout a students’ academic journey.

Process

  • Students must be enrolled at a partner community college

Students may complete the dual advising application prior to applying for admission to Friends University. A separate application will be required when students are ready to transfer.
