Academic Advising Services

student and academic advisor

How can Academic Advising Help?

Academic Advising Services in the Faculty of Liberal Arts and Professional Studies (LA&PS) provides students with the information and guidance they need to succeed in their academic careers. Advisors can help students make the right academic decisions by explaining policies and regulations as well as presenting different options available to them in their studies.

By speaking with an academic advisor, students can get answers to questions related to program selection, academic standing, petitions, grades and degree requirements. For questions related to a specific major, students should contact their major program office.

Before you book an academic advising appointment, see these Frequently Asked Questions for the information you need.

How can I speak with an Academic Advisor?

Refer to the tabs below and click on your program. Students may be able to speak with an advisor on the spot (walk-in/drop-in), or they may need to book a future appointment.

Advising for Undecided majors and majors not listed is offered in 103 Central Square.
