Types of Advisement
Advising Centers are staffed by teams who are knowledgeable about the overall advising process in a school. Advising Centers are central anchor points in a school's academic advisement system and the place to go when unsure where to turn for any question or problem related to advisement.
Some students receive advisement in the department or program office of their declared or intended major. Faculty advisors focus on the knowledge, skills and experiences associated with the department. Refer to your department's website to see if departmental advisement is available.
Faculty advisors provide guidance related to both academic and professional pursuits in a particular area of study. Academic advice from faculty complements other forms of academic advisement and classroom learning. They share your passion so this is an opportunity for you to tap into their expertise in your area of concentration.
Faculty members can help your build and implement plans for coursework, independent study and internships, research opportunities, career options, and co-curricular activities that draw from University-wide resources, New York City, and beyond.
Some schools have advisors that focus on the specific needs of a particular class. Class advisors will provide course-specific guidance as a you progress through the stages of your undergraduate career.
