"Academic advising is an educational process that, by intention and design, facilitates students' understanding of the meaning and purpose of higher education and fosters their intellectual and personal development toward academic success and lifelong learning." (NACADA, 2004).
The Golisano Advising Team is committed to the success of all students within the college. In tandem with the Institute Advising Office, we utilize a student-centered approach that enriches learning and facilitates student development in preparation for success within a diverse, global society. Academic advisors empower students to make decisions that enhance their educational, personal, and professional growth and development. Through consistent interactions, advisors build strong relationships with students. We believe academic advising is driven by students. Academic advisors guide students on how to navigate through the overall college experience.
Your advisor should be your first point of contact for assistance and advising. An academic advisor has been assigned to you based on the first letter of your last name. BS/MS dual degree students are assigned to Christina Rohr. Please be sure to view your current advisor assignment via the RIT Student Information System (SIS).
To schedule an appointment, please call the Computer Science Student Services Office or stop by our office in GOL-3005. We do not do same day appointments, so please plan accordingly. Appointments are typically held between 9am-4pm.
Advising appointments may be necessary to discuss the following:
Schedule Changes and Planning

Advisors are also available via email to answer questions. Advisors use your RIT email account as the primary means of contacting students. If you use another email, you should forward all your RIT mail to the account you check regularly.
