Academic Advising

Welcome to Academic Advising!

Academic Advising is an ongoing learning process in which you partner with an academic advisor. Each student enrolled in an academic program is assigned an advisor, either a faculty advisor familiar with your academic program or a professional advisor based in the Academic Advising Center. Your advisor will work with you each semester to develop and/or modify an academic plan so you achieve your academic goals in the time frame that best complements your life and future goals.

Please call us at: 413-236-1620 to schedule an appointment with a team member from Academic Advising.

Office Hours:

Mondays - Fridays       8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
