 Academic Advising During Covid-19

We know this is a very confusing time for Rutgers students. Don't worry - your advisors are still here to help you achieve academic success. SAS students are able to meet with advisors remotely – over the phone, or on a computer/phone as either a voice or video call. Students are also welcome to email advisors with questions.

We are ready to support you. New information continues to be released and we will do our best to answer any questions you have as we learn more. We ask for your patience and flexibility as we all learn new ways to connect and communicate.

Connect with an academic advisor through Live Chat 9am-5pm EST


A green checkmark means an advisor is available; a red X means that there currently isn't a live chat session to join.
