Undergraduate Academic Support

Meet Your International Advisor

At UAlbany, every student has an academic success team. If you are an international undergraduate student, I am a member of your team and I am here to help you achieve your goals.

Part of my role as the Director for International Academic Partnerships and International Academic Advising is to provide academic advising support to new and continuing international undergraduate students.

Every UAlbany undergraduate student is also assigned an Academic Advising and/or departmental advisor.

To find the names of your advisor(s), log into MyUAlbany, navigate to the Academics tab and select "Advisor Information," which is located under Academic Summary. If no one is listed, please email [email protected].
