Academic & Pre-Professional Advising

Guiding your choices. Growing your options. Going your way.

Teacher, professional, mentor, friend, ally, advocate. These are just some of the ways Hartwick advisors are described by their students. In a campus setting that is known for its friendliness and support, our advisors play an influential role in the academic, co-curricular, and social lives of our students. From the time students are first considering Hartwick through their enrollment, graduation and beyond, advisors are invested in helping students achieve success both in and out of the classroom.

If you're a student who would like assistance with virtually any matter affecting your college experience, start with an advisor. They are prepared to listen, to understand, to share, and when necessary, to refer you to someone who can help in a different way. From your arrival, you are assigned to an academic advisor who may be a professor in your major or a member of our professional advising staff. Contact your academic advisor when it's time to discuss your progress and direction, or when you need an answer or a clarification. Advisors expect students to reach out to them, and not just during course registration time.

At Hartwick, advising starts with the student, engages the whole person, and leads to the graduate.
