Advising

Here at Manhattan College, we believe a successful future is the product of an artfully customized education. With us it’s personal—we craft each students’ experience to meet their specific needs, offering more one-on-one contact and support than most other colleges. 

  • Academic Advising

    The School of Education and Health provides the service of an academic advisor, as well as faculty advisors. Not sure which major to choose? No problem. Your academic advisor will be able to:

    • Provide expert advice, tailored specifically for your goals.
    • Assist with major selection and course scheduling
    • Offer helpful advice on double majors, minors and any other program of study

    Having a dedicated academic advisor will help you get the most out of the many opportunities available for you at the College, and help you feel in control of your education and the future.

    Students in the Education Department have three advisors:

    • an Education Department faculty member
    • a faculty member from the department of their academic concentration,
    • a School of Education and Health academic advisor

    Students in the Kinesiology and the Radiological and Health Professions departments have two advisors:

    • a department faculty advisor
    • a School of Education and Health academic advisor

    Students in the Graduate Counseling, Leadership and Education Department work directly with their program directors for advising.
