Humanities & Arts Advising and Graduation Auditing
As comprehensive advising to cover your entire college career cannot be done in a single session, we recommend that all students visit an H&A advisor once a semester to receive advice about course selection as well as important updates about your progress toward graduation. October and March are designated as “Advising Month” in their given semesters, so please stop by then and any other time you have a question or need help.
In addition to advising you through your academic program, our office will also be auditing your graduation file in your final semester—please bring any questions regarding academic requirements to our attention as early as possible so we can work together toward an on-time graduation.

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.

“One child, one teacher, one pen, and one book can change the world.”
“The function of art is to do more than tell it like it is—it’s to imagine what is possible.”
“It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences.”
