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

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 Abby Beck or call 617-573-8034.
