Student Advising Services mission is to assist undergraduate students in the discovery and development of their academic goals through advising. We serve students in transition—those undecided about a major, those required to leave one major and choose another one, and those not yet pursuing a degree—non-matriculating students. Our center also directs the University Scholars Program and provides guidance to students planning to pursue careers in several doctoral level health professions and law. The services we provide include:

Academic advice and guidance for students—especially those who are undecided about an academic goal:

  • Academic advice—developing an academic plan, discussing degree requirements, understanding academic policies and their implications
  • Major exploration for undecided students
  • Finding a new major
  • Student Success Workshops
  • Helping students connect with UB learning and student services resources
  • Developing a plan for including internships and study abroad in a degree program
  • Evaluating alternative and military experiences for university credit
