The Importance of Advisement

Understanding degree requirements, choosing courses, and registering for classes can be confusing. Although students have the ultimate responsibility for knowing and meeting degree requirements, they do not have to navigate the system alone! Seeking help from an advisor is not only required, but the smartest and easiest way for a student to complete his or her degree.

Advisement within Colin Powell School for Civic and Global Leadership is offered through a combination of faculty and professional staff.

The professional staff of the Colin Powell School Advising Office can help students in many ways:

•   Advising students who wish to learn more about Colin Powell School majors.
•   Advising students who are considering a change of major.
•   Monitoring and guiding students who are struggling academically.
•   Providing information on the Core Curriculum.
•   Assisting you with information about many CCNY policies, such as: Waivers, Study Abroad, Late Registrations, Late Withdrawals, Leave of Absence, Graduation Requirements, and Courses at Other Institutions
•   Connecting students to other CCNY services, such as: Office of Student Affairs, Financial Aid, Writing Center, Career counseling, Counseling Center, Academic Resources, and Residential Life etc.

Faculty Advisement

Colin Powell School believes in the importance of faculty-student interaction, which is the core of the advising process. Our faculty members provide quality advisement services to students pursuing majors or minors in any of our social sciences degree programs. Faculty advisors know the curriculum and can suggest the proper sequencing and combination of coursework. They can also make suggestions for internships and co-curricular activities.

Through consistent contact with a faculty advisor, students can develop the kind of working relationship in which they will gain exposure to career opportunities and guidance on graduate degree programs.
