TUTORING & ADVISING
One thing that sets Golden Gate University apart from our contemporaries is our commitment to helping each student on an individual basis. That's exactly why we offer a variety of learning support services both on site as well as online. Most of our tutors have a master's degree in their field, and many of them are instructors here at GGU, so they understand what it takes for students to succeed in their classwork and in their careers.
Three weeks into your first semester, you'll be paired with a student services advisor who will work with you to develop a plan of study. Your advisor will act as a liaison between your and your instructors, career counselors, and financial planners. Your advisor will help you select appropriate courses, answer questions about career planning, and provide specific academic advising.
Student Life at Golden Gate University is defined by three features: information, involvement, and networking. Whether a full time or part time student, online or on campus, every student is encouraged to stay connected and stay informed about GGU. We offer a number of different resources that our students can take advantage of to keep up with all the news and changes taking place with GGU.
