Advisement Guide Program

The Advisement Guide program groups experienced SUNY Oswego students with incoming freshmen to aid in their transition to SUNY Oswego and enhance their first-year experience. Advisement Guides work to assist students by providing academic support and linking students to campus resources. 

Advisement Guides can help students learn the ropes of college life by discussing such topics as:

  • Campus resources
  • Good study habits
  • Time management skills
  • Ways to get involved on campus
  • Campus systems (e.g., Degree Works, myOswego)
How does the program work?

Advisement Guides are a part of SUNY Oswego’s Advisement Center. They are available to assist their peers with areas such as other offices on campus that are partnered with the Advisement Guides, as well as campus resources and online systems for students (e.g., Degree Works). Advisement Guides will also help support their peers academically with aspects such as time management skills and study strategies.

Who are the Advisement Guides?

Advisement Guides are successful sophomores, juniors, and seniors who are available to assist their peers. Our Advisement Guides excel academically and are involved around campus.


Remember: Advisement Guides are not tutors, counselors, or your advisor, but they can guide to the campus resources that will provide any additional support that you may need!
