The Division of Student Affairs is committed to creating a safe and secure living and learning atmosphere that is focused on students which promotes student development, mutual care and respect, ethics, leadership, balance and wellness.
Students are assigned a faculty advisor who will help them schedule courses and choose the electives that will meet their curricular requirements, as well as prepare them for their particular career goals. In addition to the faculty advisor, Academic Advisement is available to help students make appropriate decisions related to scheduling, course sequencing for specific career paths, and degree requirements. Each student is responsible, ultimately, for their course selections that lead to a college degree.
Academic Advisement works closely with students and offers guidance on academic, personal, and social matters. They also screen students' academic progress, assist them with their adjustment to the College, maintain close contact with advisors, and provide academic counseling/support to students on academic probation. In addition to the guidance students receive from their faculty advisors, they should attend departmental meetings during the school year. These sessions, held twice each semester, give students the opportunity to obtain important information about their academic programs and an opportunity to ask faculty any questions related to their majors.
All students are assigned an advisor when they enter Daemen College and should meet with their advisors prior to registering for courses, prior to mid-terms, and prior to final exams. Students are encouraged to discuss academic, career, and personal matters with their advisors at any time.
Students may add or drop courses during the first week of classes.
After the first week of classes, it is no longer possible to drop a course; however, students may withdraw from a course. Depending on the date of withdrawal, students will be responsible for partial or full tuition. Students may petition the Committee on Academic Standards if they believe that extenuating circumstances warrant their receiving permission to withdraw after the last day for authorized withdrawal (usually two weeks after mid-term exams). Students receiving financial aid should always check with a financial aid counselor to see if course withdrawal will have adverse financial aid consequences.
Peer Mentor Program
New first-year students will have Peer Mentors during the fall semester as part of their learning community. A Peer Mentor is generally assigned in each IND section, assuring that all first-year students have access to a Peer Mentor to assist them in making successful transitions to Daemen College. Peer Mentors are Daemen students with sophomore through senior standing who work closely with new students. Peer mentors can help students adjust academically and socially to college life and assist students in developing skills for a successful college journey. Peer mentors have numerous resources available to them to help make a smooth transition between high school and college. The Peer Mentor Program is designed to cover all aspects of college life and to assist students from the first day of classes.
The Alumni Relations office strives to ensure that Daemen College students are welcomed to the campus as members of the Daemen family. The office encourages the lifelong engagement of alumni and provides a range of opportunities to connect with friends, faculty, staff, and students. Students enrolled at Daemen are provided with lifelong benefits, including: Daemen email, auditing courses, alumni discounts, career services assistance, athletic facility membership, library access, alumni discounts, etc. The office works with alumni and friends of Daemen College to coordinate annual scholarship fundraisers to benefit current students pursuing degrees. The National Alumni Board of Governors serves the needs of the Daemen alumni and the student community by retaining close ties with the alma mater through specialized programming and activities designed to foster pride, spirit, and traditions while educating students about philanthropy and alumni involvement. All services benefit students, both currently enrolled and as future alumni.
The Alumni Relations office proudly offers volunteer opportunities for current students to connect with the alumni through the award-winning Student Alumni Ambassador program. The Ambassadors serve as hosts at alumni association-sponsored programs, assist with outreach for Alumni Relations functions, provide mentorship to students from alumni, and plan leadership opportunities for growth and development for current students and alumni.
