Student Support

Creighton University is committed to providing everything you’ll need to achieve your goals.

It starts with a powerful, interdisciplinary education, rooted in the Jesuit tradition. As you immerse yourself in your pre-professional studies, you’ll develop your talents, grow intellectually and gain a global perspective. With the support you’ll receive from your professors and advisors, you’ll have a solid plan for personal and professional success.  

We’re here to help you succeed academically through individual and group tutoring, academic coaching and counseling. Creighton’s John P. Fahey Career Center will help you connect with employers for networking and internship opportunities, explore graduate and professional school options and build a strategy for your future.

In the Jesuit spirit of caring for the whole person, we’re also interested in your emotional well being. We offer counseling and support to help you through the challenges of being a student, and we strive to ensure you’re both mentally and emotionally prepared to succeed.

Even as an adult or graduate student at Creighton, you’ll experience an ideal academic environment. Working closely with recognized faculty scholars, you’ll enhance your critical thinking and build knowledge and skills that will open doors in your personal and professional life.

Family and Friends Support

How can family and friends support their distance student?

We know that transitions for families and friends helping a distance student succeed in professional school are tough and can be very stressful, but remember that your student may also be feeling the same way. It’s important to reach out to him or her early in the process in whatever way you can. Part of this involves understanding what the program requires from them so you can make plans, establish routines and anticipate what is coming.
