How Can We Help You?

RSP Advisors

All admitted students are assigned an RSP Advisor, a faculty member who will serve as your academic advisor throughout your freshman year (Ratio Studiorum Program - Latin for “plan of study”). Your advisor will help you do your best work, chart your course with you, and assist you in navigating Creighton’s abundance of resources. As you progress at Creighton and select a major, new advisors that specialize in your field will be assigned to you.

Creighton students often report how much they appreciate their advisors’ accessibility and expertise, even helping them schedule classes and find jobs.

The Creighton EDGE

Our Bluejays leave the nest with an advantage thanks to the Creighton EDGE, which offers one-on-one academic and career services to ensure your success with us and beyond.

  • Meet with an academic coach to get personalized help with time management, study habits, academic anxiety, and test taking
  • Schedule a complimentary appointment with a tutor to dig deeper into your coursework

The Creighton Writing Center

All undergraduates have access to the Creighton Writing Center, where you can discuss your writing with our expert tutors one-on-one. The Writing Center welcomes writers of all skill levels, at any stage of the writing process.

We’ll brainstorm with you, discuss the fundamentals of composition, sharpen theses, develop content, and help you organize it on the page. Express yourself with confidence.
