Student Athletes

As a student-athlete, we know it can be hard to manage your academics and meet your team commitments. We'll help you develop a plan to make it work.

On this page, you'll find information specifically for our student-athletes and you can learn more about our designated course planning appointments, understanding faculty expectations, accessing campus resources, and how to work out scheduling conflict you may encounter.

Pre-Registration Schedule Building

The Undergraduate Academic Advising Center has created a series of Athlete Advising workshops for the upcoming semester.

During the workshop, we will cover instructions for registration approval and begin building a wishlist that will fit in with your practice and game schedules.

Academic Expectations

You are expected to maintain open communication with your faculty members throughout the semester.

To help you lay the groundwork for a successful relationship with your professors, Suffolk's "Athlete Academic Awareness Initiative" outlines your academic responsibilities as a student-athlete.

The purpose of this contract is to promote open communication between athletes and faculty to ensure that both athletic and academic expectations are met. Consult the Student-Athlete Handbook [PDF] for more information.

For questions, you or your professor may contact the Undergraduate Academic Advising Center and consult our Athletic Advising Specialist Cailyn Kelley or call 617-573-8034.
