SUNY Erie believes that academic advisement is a major element of student success. An effective advisement program provides students a forum in which students, in concert with a faculty member, can begin to connect their own academic aptitude with their educational goals. At SUNY Erie, academic advising is the catalyst for students to achieve their academic potential, objectives and, ultimately, to be life-long learners and successful citizens. Maintaining the highest professional standards, advisors will ensure all students are given the opportunity to connect the advisement process of learning, reflection and academic goal setting to their overall college experience. The advisor has the responsibility to possess accurate information and to assist students in their efforts to make informed academic decisions. To be successful, the individual student in pursuit of his or her educational goals must take advantage of the opportunities to meet with an advisor and must take responsibility for meeting the specific academic requirements of the college. All first-time, full-time, matriculating students must receive academic advisement prior to registering. Please contact the Welcome Center if you are unsure of your advisor at (716) 851-1322 or email@example.com.
