Who should come in for advising?
Appointments are designed for current Rutgers students who are taking classes at Rutgers this semester or students who have taken classes at Rutgers in the past.
Prospective students should contact University Undergraduate Admissions for information on the School of Arts and Sciences. There will be full-day advising sessions for incoming students (First Years and Transfer Students) over the summer. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate prospective or incoming students in individual advising sessions until the semester they begin at Rutgers.
When should I make an appointment?
Students are encouraged to meet with an advisor once a semester to discuss interests and long term plans. Appointments are made in advance by calling any SAS Advising Center. Your appointment may be on any campus and with any SAS Dean. Your meeting will be 15 minutes in length, so please come prepared with questions and a registration plan. Please leave adequate travel time as you may have to reschedule if you are late.
- Ask for advice on course registration.
- Discuss general education requirements, majors and minors.
- Plan a reasonable graduation date.
- Take a semester off - discuss your Leave of Absence and plan for return.
When should I stop in to see a Reference Dean?
Reference Deans are available at every SAS Advising Center Monday-Friday from 8:30am to 5:00pm unless the University is closed. You will be able to ask a question or two at the counter. If the Reference Dean finds your questions require more time, s/he will recommend an appointment. You may also use student workstations to submit online forms.
