Academic Advising

Each student is assigned an academic advisor to provide information, suggestions, counsel, discipline and coaching along their journey. Advisors also look after the well being of students under their care.


Students’ first class includes an Orientation course which introduces the online classroom platform (Sakai), other university resources, scheduling and study habits, etc. Whether students are fully computer literate or a little nervous about technology, the orientation process teaches them all they need to know.


Course syllabi include book requirements for each course. Some books are available in electronic format while others are only in paper format. You can also purchase Johnson-branded items.
