Academic Advising is a critical component of the educational experience for all students. It encourages students to develop decision-making skills, to think critically about goals and objectives, and to assume responsibility for their actions and plans.
NYIT offers a range of academic advising resources—including faculty advising, the Advising and Enrichment Center, online degree maps, and information found within the college catalogs—to assist students in making meaningful educational plans that are compatible with their career goals.
First-Year Academic Advisor. All incoming first-year students are assigned a first semester advisor upon admission to NYIT. First semester advisors assist students with advisement and on-line registration for their initial semester at NYIT. Students transition to a program advisor in their major for advisement in subsequent semesters.
This strategy emphasizes the importance of quality relationships between student and faculty and also teaches students about all the resources available to make their advising experience meaningful.
Professional Staff in the School of Management are ready and willing to advise our students! For your academic advisor, please refer to our staff listing.
Students who support the NYIT SOM advising function are typically eligible to receive one SA point per semester. A point will only be earned with written documentation provided in evidence of their advising support in the form of a written testimonial from a School of Management academic advisor. Experiences of advising outside of the School of Management typically also earn a point provided that the equivalent written testimonial is received from the respective faculty or staff academic advisor.
