Academic Advising

Build a Relationship with Your Academic Advisor

We hope you, your families, and all your loved ones are safe and healthy. If you've been directly affected by COVID-19, we're sending you our wishes for recovery, solace, and peace.

Now that classes have started, come and see us! We do a lot more than issue permissions to enroll in courses.

How can your advisor help you? We are your most stable and enduring connection to City College. Our job is to assist you with fulfilling your degree requirements, as well as with navigating the college's rules, procedures, systems, and student resources.  We connect you with information about scholarships, tutoring, disability services, and financial aid. We can be your sounding board about your career goals and point you toward useful resources. We are professionals who have attended graduate school, so we can help you understand what is in store if you choose to pursue a master’s degree. We can encourage you to take a breath in moments of feeling overwhelmed. We can help you move from “What course do I have to take?” to “What course will feed my mind and help me grow?”

Give yourself the gift of checking in with your advisor before the crunch time of choosing classes for next semester. Get ahead of the curve.

We are available to meet with you during regular business hours. Schedule your appointment by contacting the CWE Virtual Front Desk, and you will be told how your advisor will be available to communicate with you (email, phone, or videoconference). If you choose a phone or videoconference appointment, you will receive a link to a Blackboard Collaborate session.

Bring your questions and your ideas. We look forward to seeing you.
