New Student Advising

Starting in Spring 2024, credit students who are new to City Colleges and are pursuing a certificate or degree must meet with their assigned academic advisor during their first semester. 

During the appointment, new students will get help choosing or confirming their program, selecting their classes, and finding other helpful resources at their college. Students should schedule an appointment via Navigate​.  

Please note: New students will not be able to register for the next semester until they have met with their assigned advisor.
