Other helpful suggestions as spring semester concludes:  

Students can check their grades via Murphy Online. Once logged in they should select the Student Services tab then click on Student Records then choose Final Grades”.   

The Academic Counseling Study Skills page is a great resource for time management advice, test-taking tips and other success strategies.   

Encourage your student to take advantage of Virtual Tutoring. Our St. Thomas undergraduate classes have online tutoring and academic support – virtually! 

Students ready to officially declare their major can do so via the online Major Declaration form located on their OneStThomas My Actions list. When your student(s) declare a major, their advisor assignment changes to a faculty member from that major department.  

Academic Counseling and the Career Development Center are great resources for students who are exploring their major options.   

The Center for Student Achievement website includes a helpful timeline of overall suggestions that help students stay on track during every year of their enrollment.
