About Advising

The goals of Advising are to:

  • Encourage students’ academic, career and transfer planning through an inclusive and supportive environment;
  • Provide students with accurate information and resources so they can navigate matriculation and their college experience appropriately with the ultimate goal of a college degree;
  • Promote personal responsibility in guiding students to achieve their goals, understand the relevance of higher education and value academic success;
  • Use technology and mutually respectful personal relationships to assist students with appropriate educational planning;
  • Foster continuous improvement through advisor education, evaluation of students’ needs and program assessment

At SUNY Adirondack, all full-time enrolled students are assigned an academic advisor based on their major. This advisor serves as a guide to educational and career planning, and a resource in students' pathways to success at SUNY Adirondack.

Students can view their advisor's name in Degree Works or in Self-Service Banner.

Students can take advantage of advising services in the Center for Student Success in Warren Hall, as well as other opportunities on both main campus and Saratoga Center.
