Undergraduate Advising

First-Year & Sophomore Advising

The University of Rochester’s academic advising program is a collaborative partnership among faculty and staff designed to help students achieve academic success.

Beginning with the 2020-21 academic year, each new first-year and transfer student will be assigned to a College advisor who will remain with them from their first semester of college until graduation. College advisors will be assigned to new students in June; students can expect to receive email communication from their advisor during the month of June or July, prior to course registration in August.

Students in the Class of 2023 will continue to receive guidance from the undergraduate advisor assigned to them upon matriculation. Upon formal declaration of the major, generally by the end of the sophomore year, a faculty advisor will be assigned to provide major-specific advising within the academic department or program.
