Online Student Advising and Support


Upon acceptance into a University of Bridgeport distance learning program, you will be assigned a dedicated academic advisor who will guide you through your academic journey—from acceptance to graduation.



As your advisors, we strive to:

  • Create an atmosphere of listening and understanding in partnership with you
  • Engage in meaningful dialogue with you on the phone, through email and/or in person
  • Enable you to take ownership of your course selection, academic resources, career development, and other opportunities while a student at the University
  • Collaborate with departments throughout the University of Bridgeport to support your success
  • Advocate for all online students and work to improve systems and processes to create a seamless student experience for you
  • Empower you to complete your program and become a proud graduate of the University
