We Can Help!
GPP strives to provide our students with resources to help them succeed as a student, as a working professional and as an individual working to balance it all. We want you to know that you aren’t alone – we are here to help! Below you’ll find a short list of resources that you might find helpful. If something isn’t listed, give Kate Schoeck a call and she’ll do her best to provide you with the support needed!
Integral to an Emmanuel College education is academic advising which provides a comprehensive framework where students are able to explore the curriculum and focus on achieving their goals effectively. Beyond meeting with you to advise on course selection and curriculum planning, an advisor will enable you to become an active participant in your own learning. The academic advising program begins with an initial interview as part of the acceptance process and continues during the registration period and at any time you request throughout your period of study.
Additional roles of our advisor include:
- Interpreting academic policies and guidelines for students by providing examples and/or samples as appropriate;
- Responding to inquiries from both current and prospective students;
- Providing continuity in terms of monitoring student progress;
- Meeting with students as requested and guiding them as their goals change;
- Auditing student transcripts to determine graduation eligibility and graduation honors; and
- Evaluating courses submitted for transfer credit.
Scheduling an appointment with your academic advisor is the best way to ensure availability. To schedule, simply email your academic advisor at least one business day in advance. If you need to change or cancel your appointment, contact your academic advisor as soon as possible to reschedule.

Mission and Ministry
Many of our GPP students have said they stop by the Chapel to enjoy its peaceful environment and participate in quiet reflection. Emmanuel College strives to create a welcoming community that embraces the Gospel ethic that inspires us to seek social justice and to live compassionately. Campus Ministry offers opportunities for students, faculty and staff to enrich their relationship with God, self and others through prayer groups, retreats, days apart, discussion groups, spiritual direction, pastoral counseling, education, the Catholic sacramental life, interdenominational dialogue and varied community services.
