Using the Center for Academic Advising & Professional Development (CAAPD)

The CAAPD helps students navigate curriculum, choose majors, explore career opportunities and post- graduation plans.

Advisors are typically available from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and all appointments are scheduled for 30 minutes.

Our academic advisors are available to answer questions regarding General Education (GenEd), College, and program requirements in CLA.  If you are a continuing student and would like to meet with an advisor you may call 215-204-7971  (press option #5) to set up your appointment.  We also offer academic advising at the Ambler and TUCC campuses. Please call (267) 468-8200 to schedule an appointment at Ambler. If you wish to be advised at TUCC please contact Paula Robison.

At the main campus same day academic appointments are available on a first-come, first-served basis. At the beginning of the semester, during priority registration and new student orientations, many students utilize our services, so it is best to plan ahead!

During non-peak times you may schedule a future appointment five business days in advance.
