"Academic advising is an educational process that, by intention and design, facilitates students' understanding of the meaning and purpose of higher education and fosters their intellectual and personal development toward academic success and lifelong learning." (NACADA, 2004).

The Department of Computer Science academic advising program guides and empowers you to make decisions that enhance your educational, personal and professional growth and development.

We share a unified vision of being at the forefront of emerging academic services and support the mission of Rochester Institute of Technology. Our approach is intentional and collaborative, focusing on supporting the individual and not the aggregate. Academic advising is teaching. While the outcomes of advising are not always tangible, together we will work to shift problems to possibilities, to focus on being proactive instead of reactive, and to celebrate your personal achievements.
