Academic Advising

Academic advising is an ongoing dialogue between students and advisers to help students achieve their educational and personal goals.

 

How does advising work?

Professional Academic Advisors work to ensure that you spend your time at NYU Shanghai in the most productive and positive way possible. Your advisor provides you with practical information about NYU Shanghai graduation requirements, course selection, and the process of registration. In your advising appointments, your advisor will collaborate with you to define and articulate your larger academic and career goals and to shape your coursework each semester in ways that further these goals. Beyond specific academic concerns, your advisor will help you navigate NYU’s broad spectrum of policies, procedures, and resources, and, when necessary, will serve as a source of comprehensive information about university-wide student support services. You should consider your advisor as a “go-to” person who is there to assist you with any concerns or issues that arise throughout your undergraduate experience.
