Academic Advising

student with advisor

GCCIS Advising Philosophy

The Golisano Advising Team is committed to the success of all students within the college. In tandem with the University Advising Office, we utilize a student-centered approach that enriches learning and facilitates student development in preparation for success within a diverse, global society. Academic advisors empower students to make decisions that enhance their educational, personal, and professional growth and development. Through consistent interactions, advisors build strong relationships with students. We believe academic advising is driven by students. Academic advisors guide students on how to navigate through the overall college experience.

  • Develop individual student plans of study and assist in course selection
