Academic Advising

Every student comes to college with his or her own distinct set of talents, experiences and goals. There are some shared experiences among students, but your student’s experience will be a unique journey.  Because you are important to your student’s success, we see you as a part of the SUNY Cortland community and welcome you along with your student. 

New students are assigned to academic advisors from their major department early in the fall semester. For students who are undecided about what they eventually will choose for a major, the College has a Pre-Major Program with special advisement. Advisors for the Pre-Major Program are assigned through Advisement and Transition.  Students can view their academic advisor (name and contact information) through myRedDragon.
