Compass for Students

What is Seton Hall Compass?

Seton Hall Compass aims to increase retention and graduation rates by improving student achievement. Developed by the Education Advisory Board (EAB) and accessible through PirateNet, the platform combines technology and research to help students in their academic endeavors. Compass provides faculty, advisers, tutors, and program directors with a convenient way to support students.

Some students might have academic performance or attendance issues. Compass gives us an efficient way to communicate those concerns to the people who can help, while respecting FERPA and our institution's policies on the privacy of student information.

We offer drop-in tutoring in the ARC (Arts and Sciences Hall, Suite 242) for most of our subjects; no appointments are necessary. Schedule an Appointment for specific subjects.
