Every student is assigned an academic advisor. The academic advisor assists students in establishing their education plan for completing their degree. Academic advisors are available to answer questions about completing degree requirements. Contracts can be made by email, phone, or by individual appointment. Students are to consult with their academic advisor at least 16 weeks prior to graduation to assure that all requirements are fulfilled.
Student Identification Cards
Student I.D. cards are prepared and issued by the end of the first cohort course. They are needed when cashing checks, using the Fitness center, Library, and participating in campus student activities. There is a replacement fee if an I.D. card is lost.
Change of Address/Information
Students who change their address, telephone number, or name are required to make the changes in their MYJUDSON page.

Professional Studies students are welcome and encouraged to use the computer facilities located in the Student Success Center on both the Elgin and Rockford campuses. All computers are connected to the Internet and offer a variety of software, including Microsoft Office Suite. Students may not load personal software onto the computers and should keep their work saved on a flash drive, since folders are regularly purged.
The primary mission of the library staff is to give personalized attention through class instruction, individual appointments, and proactive reference help. Through the interlibrary loan service, the library staff is capable of obtaining virtually any book or periodical from other libraries, if given enough time to fulfill the request. The library sends and receives books throughout the state, country, and the world. Students are personally responsible for the proper use and timely return of all interlibrary loan materials, including fines charged by the lending libraries for overdue materials, not only at Judson University, but also at other Illinois academic libraries.
Students can use their I.D. cards as their fitness center pass. For further information, contact the fitness center at 847-628-1576.
The mission of Judson University Campus Safety is to protect and serve the student body, faculty, staff, and guests of Judson University. Officers are on duty 24 hours a day. Officers are trained in First Aid and CPR, as they are the officially designated campus Medical First Responders.
When Professional Studies students attend orientation, they will also register their vehicle(s) so they may park at the Elgin campus (a proof of current auto insurance must be provided). A parking sticker and "The Judson University Parking and Traffic Regulations" will be issued at that time. All vehicles parked or operated on the Elgin campus must be registered and display the parking sticker in the lower left hand side of the back window. A fee of $75 will be charged to any student who fails to register his/her vehicle.
The Professional Studies video chapel, The King's Errand, provides a brief scriptural devotional thought, and may be accessed through the Judson website.
If conditions warrant either closing the university (traditional and adult classes) or a delay in opening, we will contact the Emergency Closings Center which you can access at http://www.emergencyclosings.com/ . You may also call the Judson emergency closing phone number to check the status: 847-628-2542. There may be situations when the main campus has classes during the day, but the Professional Studies administration decides that inclement weather that has occurred during the day requires canceling evening classes. On questionable weather days, a decision will be made for Professional Studies classes by 3pm on weekdays, and 6am on Saturdays.
