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
Mondays - Fridays 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Please e-mail us if you have any questions: email@example.com
We hope you have a successful semester! Go Falcons!

BCC takes shape in many forms: Have you worked with a faculty or staff member who
has answered a question for you, helped you select your classes, assisted you with
coursework, helped you navigate online resources, etc.? If so, you’ve been advised!
Let’s take a moment to celebrate the different ways faculty and staff support students.
