Academic Planning

student advising

Welcome! We look forward to meeting you during Orientation. The Office of Academic Success is here to help you thrive at Swarthmore and beyond. At first glance, it might seem overwhelming to balance your interests, goals, and college requirements with the range and number of options available. The Academic Planning sub-sections of this website can help you think about and plan your first semester of courses at Swarthmore. 

In mid-July, we will email you with information about how to access the New Student Orientation Moodle course. In that course, we will provide more information about placement tests, degree requirements, advising and academic support.
