First Year Advisement

As soon as you enroll at SUNY Oswego, we assign a faculty member to you as your first year advisor.  Prior to the start of the semester, you will receive the name and contact information for this valuable person.

This faculty advisor is prepared to help you make decisions about your academic courses, activities and resources.  The advisor may also work with a peer advisor who is an upper-class student acting as a resource person and mentor to you.

Think of your first year faculty and peer advisor as your own personal support team, ready with the expertise and tools to help you succeed.  This advisement team is eager to answer any questions you may have about Oswego.

First Year Students for Fall 2016 will be assigned a First Year Advisor in August.
