Academic Resources

Advising Services
Academic Advisors are available to meet with students for a variety of reasons. These include, but are not limited to: course sequencing, educational plans, concerns about academics and practice, academic warnings and academic probation, time management, and all general questions. All students are required to meet with an Academic Advisor at least once a year; however, we strongly encourage students to meet once a semester. Students who are on Academic Probation may be required to meet with their Academic Advisor on a more frequent basis.

Academic Advisors are available by appointment and during specific drop-in times throughout the year. Appointments can be made Monday through Thursday between the hours of 9 am to 7 pm. To schedule an appointment, you can go in person to the office, call the general Academic Advising line at 617.585.0160, or email

Note: Appointments must be scheduled at least three days in advance and, if necessary, must be canceled 24 hours in advance. Advising Services is located on the first floor of 320 Newbury Street.
