Advising Goals

In the Office of Academic Advising, we believe that students should be proud, confident members of their college community. We work to help our students achieve their academic goals and, in turn, prepare them to achieve their career goals and become citizens of the world. Through collaborative advising practices, we empower students to think critically about their roles and responsibilities as students. The shared model of academic advising at the City College allows departments and offices across the institution to work with one-another to promote integrated student learning, development and success. Our advising sessions are always confidential as we abide by CCNY and FERPA Guidelines, and we handle sensitive issues with the utmost respect.

As academic advisors we hope to guide students, to help them make the most of their college experience. Here is a partial list of what we do:

  • Develop a comprehensive plan for achieving your educational/academic goals
  • Help to identify personal interests, abilities, and values
  • Help with appropriate curriculum, and course selection
  • Assist with monitoring academic progress
  • Provide information on degree requirements, general education requirements, college policies, procedures, and campus resources
  • Discuss career goals and how it relates to your major
  • Provide perspective on alternative careers as well as the possibility of graduate school
  • Discuss enhanced learning opportunities, such as study abroad, internships, etc.
