Asian University for Women (AUW): the first regional, liberal arts institution in South Asia

Academic Resources

  • AUW students have a wide range of academic resources to support them during their course of study. Below are just a few of the resources currently available.

    Academic Advising

    All students at AUW receive academic advising support throughout their course of study. Students should work together with their advisers to plan carefully and thoughtfully their schedules and curricula. Students are required to meet formally with their advisers prior to course registration in any given term.

    At the beginning of the academic year, all new Access Academy and new Undergraduate students will be assigned an academic adviser from among the faculty. The adviser will work with the student as she plans her studies through the Access Academy and core curriculum in the first and second UG years.

    Once a student has declared a major course of study she will be assigned an academic adviser in the relevant program by the program Dean. That faculty member will remain the student’s adviser until her graduation and will lead her through her upper-division course of studies. Should an adviser leave AUW, students will be immediately reassigned to a new adviser.

    Students may request assignment to a specific major adviser; but that adviser must approve the addition of the student to his/her advising roster. Requests for specific assignments must be made through Dean of Faculty.
