Advising Office

The Advising Office (TAO) is dedicated to helping Saint Mary's students realize their academic potential by connecting them with the faculty advisors, support offices, and campus resources they need to succeed.

Our programs and services support you in planning your studies and reaching your educational, career and life goals. We'll help you assess your academic and personal skills, interests, values and abilities, examine the academic and career opportunities available to you, and use that knowledge to develop and reach realistic and meaningful goals.
