Academic advising at RIT fosters a collaborative relationship between a student and advisor. It is our mission to engage and empower each student to take responsibility for their learning and to make decisions that will positively advance their personal, educational, and professional goals. Our student-centered approach enriches student learning and facilitates student development in preparation for success within a diverse, global society.
All undergraduate students are assigned to an academic advisor; most students also have a faculty advisor. Advisors help students transition to college, integrate into the RIT community, navigate their curriculum, connect to campus resources, evaluate progress toward on-time degree completion, and explore career choices. Students new to the university (freshman and transfers) are required to meet with their academic advisor during their first year. These advising sessions allow students and advisors time to build their advising relationship and plan for success. You can find your advisors on SIS and Tiger Center.
