As an undergraduate student at Suffolk University, you will be assigned an academic advisor. Among other things, your academic advisor approves you to register for classes, so you are required to meet at least once per semester. Academic advisors are available to you for much more than course selection. Plan to meet with your advisor regularly throughout each semester so we can discuss your goals, help you create long term plans, and assist you in building your Suffolk resume.
To schedule an advising appointment at the Undergraduate Academic Advising Center:
You are required to meet with your assigned advisor at least twice a year (once every semester) prior to registering for classes.
However, we strongly encourage you to meet with your advisor far more often than that. To provide you with the best service, we need to get to know you and understand your interests and goals. Students should plan to meet with their academic advisor throughout the semester, to remain on track and discuss any issues that may be occurring.
To be prepared:
If your appointment is for course selection and registration, you must bring the following:
Undeclared majors are generally assigned an advisor in the Undergraduate Academic Advising Center. Once students declare a major, they are reassigned to a faculty advisor within their major department.
All students are welcome to meet with an advisor in the Undergraduate Academic Advising Center for academic planning, study abroad planning, major changes, or any other general questions.
