Students are assigned to an advisor in the Teachers College Advising and Recruiting Center when they become a sophomore.

Once you reach sophomore status, you will receive an email from the Advising and Recruiting Center. Call and make an appointment when you get the email. Do not wait.

Make an appointment to see your advisor at least once a semester to make sure you are on track and taking appropriate courses.

Find Your Advisor

You can find the name of your academic advisor on your DegreeWorks Audit or by selecting "Current Degree and Advisor" under the student records link in Self Service Banner.

Tips for Contacting Us

Do not use email to try to schedule an appointment. Because of the volume of students, we cannot efficiently use e-mail for scheduling.

However, students are welcome to use e-mail for questions or for immediate priority situations.

If you leave a voice mail message, be clear and leave your name and return number.

All advisors get busy during high priority times like Course Request and Change of Course periods. Call early to make sure you have a choice of appointment times and that you have left enough time for follow up appointments if necessary.
