Our services include: academic advising, pre-major support, learning community support, transfer credit evaluation, permission to transfer credit process, new student orientation, first-year seminar, early alert outreach, and student support programming for transfer, non-traditional and graduate students. 

Courses offered: COR 101, The Cortland Experience; COR 201, Enhancing the Transfer Experience; ADV 200, Major and Career Exploration  

We've Moved!

Advisement and Transition will be temporarily located in Brockway Hall, Jacobus Lounge, while our space in Memorial Library is being renovated.  Our phone and email will remain the same.  We will be moving back to our space in Memorial Library once the renovation is complete.
