Academic Support Resources


All enrolled graduate students at the Crown Family School receive general academic advising through the office of the Dean of Students. When students enter Crown School as a first year student, they are assigned a faculty advisor with whom they are encouraged to discuss their academic program and career plans. First-year advisor assignments are generally made with the student’s Core faculty and are assigned by the office of the Dean of Students during their first quarter in the program. Post-Core faculty advisors are assigned in association with the student's chosen program of study or concentration. Throughout their attendance at the Crown School, students are encouraged to engage any faculty member for advice or information regarding their interests or concerns. The student tab of MyCrownSchool contains many helpful advising tools, including course schedules, degree maps, writing supports, and more. The Dean of Students web page provides additional information regarding accommodations, financial concerns, special programs, or special needs.
