Office of Academic and Student Affairs

The Office of Academic and Student Affairs (OASA) in the School of Pharmacy and Health Professions at Creighton University supports the University and School missions through advising and serving the students so that they may develop as caring, ethical, and knowledgeable health care professionals. The Office provides a wide array of services to assist students in achieving their educational goals through community building and mutual support.

The Office of Academic and Student Affairs (OASA) employs full-time Academic Success Consultants to assist students both academically and personally in achieving their goals.  The Academic Success Consultants assist students with study skills, test-taking strategies, time management, and scholarship and financial aid information. Using a case management approach, counselors provide intervention and guidance to assure needed student services are well coordinated. The counselors have special faculty status and teach interdisciplinary academic success courses/seminars, hold faculty development sessions, and serve as guest lecturers in all our academic programs.

The staff also coordinate new student orientations, graduation activities, annual employment fair, class schedules, leadership development, academic advising. They also monitor student CPR compliance, work with student organizations to coordinate events, communicate newsworthy information to students via email, complete applications for licensure, register students and process registration changes, maintain the school calendar, monitor academic achievement, post scholarship and employment opportunities, advise students on proper school procedures and guidelines, maintain and enforce school policies and procedures, and update the school’s website and the school’s issue of the Creighton University Catalog.
