Schedule an Academic Advising Session

Appointments should be scheduled in advance unless there is serious, time-sensitive need. Students experiencing a crisis situation and who require immediate intervention should contact Counseling & Psychological Services (212-854-2878) or Public Safety (212-854-2797, or 4-5555 from a campus phone).

To set up an advising meeting with your academic (or club) adviser, take the following steps in Starfish :

  • Navigate to the My Success Network channel from your home page. Here, you'll see your academic and club advisers as well as instructors listed.
  • Identify your academic (or club) adviser on this page and click the drop-down arrow to the right of their name and select "Schedule".
  • Select the appointment type and reason for your appointment, then click "continue" on the bottom right of the screen.
  • Select a time for your appointment, then click "continue" on the bottom right of the screen.
  • Review the details of your appointment and provide additional details using the comment box. Then click "confirm".
  • Upcoming appointments will be listed on your Starfish homepage in the timeline view (left column). Click the edit icon (a picture of a pencil) to modify the appointment or the cancel icon (an X) to cancel it. If you do choose to cancel an appointment, please do so as far in advance as possible so the slot can be used by another student

If you would need to make an appointment with another adviser or member of OSA who is not in your success network:

On the My Success Network page, scroll down to Your Services, and click Show Other Services

  • Click on Office of Student Affairs
  • Schedule an appointment following the same steps as above. You will only be able to schedule an appointment with those who have current availability in Starfish.

In addition to academic advising appointments, OSA offers virtual Quick Question hours via Zoom, Monday-Friday from 12:00-1:00pm. Students should join the Quick Question hour if they have a time-sensitive, general question that can be answered in five minutes or less. For more specific questions, students should make an advising appointment following the instructions above or email [email protected].

The Quick Question hour Zoom meeting link is available through Starfish. Log in to Starfish  and click “Quick Question Hour” under Your Connections to view the Zoom meeting link.

When you join the Virtual Quick Question Zoom meeting, you will enter the waiting room. When you join the meeting please put your name in the chat one time. An academic advisor will admit students into the meeting one-by-one in the order in which they arrive.
