Advisement and Transition

Advisement and Transition helps you transition to college and guides you through the advisement and registration process at SUNY Cortland. We assist you with planning your courses, choosing a major, navigating university policies and connecting with campus resources. Our office services include academic advising; COR 101 seminar course for first-year students; new student orientation; transfer credit services; early alert outreach (Starfish); and student support programming for graduate, non-traditional, transfer and undeclared students. 

Open Advising on Wednesdays throughout the semester

Advisors will be available each Wednesday from 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. throughout the semester for brief (10-15 minute) advising meetings.  Check out our fall schedule of advising topics!

Advising Reminders  

  • Degree Works had an update this summer!  Review our helpful videos or website to familiarize yourself with the new look. 
  • Did you take a summer course at another college this summer?  Are you a new student with transfer credit?  Don't forget to request official transcripts from your previous college or the College Board (for AP exams) to be sent to SUNY Cortland so you can officially be awarded credit.
  • Review our brief videos of advisement and registration tips and tricks on Degree Works, Schedule Builder, the course schedule, and checking grades.
