Academic Advising

The college endeavors to ensure that all students receive sound academic advice and guidance during their undergraduate years. First-year students, other students who have not declared a major, and all students who are on academic probation are advised by a special group of general advisers working through the Office of Academic Services.

Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF) students are advised by the counselors at the Academic Foundations Center, and Honors College students are advised by the staff of the Honors College. Students who have declared a major in arts and sciences are advised by a faculty member in the department of their major. Students at Rutgers University-Newark's professional schools are advised by general advisers in their respective schools: Rutgers Business School-Newark and New Brunswick, the School of Criminal Justice, or the School of Public Affairs and Administration.

Academic deans and advisers are also available to all undergraduate students for guidance on academic matters, and students should consult with them regarding college requirements, academic regulations, or their program of study. The Career Development Center is another useful resource for students seeking information or guidance in selecting a major. At the latest, a student must declare a major by the completion of 60 credits.
