University College at Dillard University

Collaborate, Support, Connect, Engage and Develop

University College is home to several areas designed to aid in your transition to Dillard as well as equip you with the necessary skills and information needed to thrive both inside and outside the class room.

Our team assists all first year and transfer students with their academic needs, including: 

  • Planning semester schedules
  • Considering degree options
  • Developing skills to bridge the gap between student life and academic success
Dillard University Academics

As an incoming Dillard student, you are assigned an advisor from the University College based on your last name. Assistance is available by appointments (in person/virtual/phone) or you can come by during our office hours.

Our purpose is to promote the utilization of collaborative academic support structures that allow you to explore, learn and grow personally as well as professionally, ultimately leading to your success in and out of the classroom.
