Academic advising at Hunter College is a student-centered teaching and learning process dedicated to student success. Advising teaches students the information, skills and competencies necessary to make informed choices about their college experience. Through a variety of venues, including online orientation, individual advising, group advising, and electronic communications, advisers help students to understand academic requirements, clarify their goals, access resources and devise action plans. Realizing that connections to the Hunter community contribute to student success, Advising staff members prepare students to engage with faculty, staff and fellow students. In addition, the Office of Advising provides additional resources including small group registration and special programming for first year students, the Peer Advisor Network, Project Success, Student Veteran Services, and the Sylvia E. Fishman Student Center.
