New Freshman Academic Advisement

The academic advisors in the Advisement Services Center welcome you to the University at Albany. It is our mission to help you get started on the right path at the University to achieve your academic and career goals. Your advisor will guide and mentor you through your first few semesters at the University until you are settled in a major.

  • This web site is designed to help you tell us what you’d like to study in your first semester here.  It will guide you through thinking about what makes sense for you, even if you are totally undecided about your direction.  We’ll give you lots of choices!
  • Once you have finished reviewing the information, please proceed to the Orientation and Course Registration on the Welcome Website checklist.

Please note, once you complete your course request form, your course schedule will be prepared for you by an academic advisor. An academic advisor will contact you to review your schedule with you prior to Orientation.
