Undergraduate Academic and Career Advising

We collaboratively guide and empower Arts and Sciences | Maxwell students, within an inclusive environment, to realize their potential and discover their purpose.

Welcome to Advising!

We'll help guide you through your time at A&S | Maxwell.

Do you have questions about majors, classes, internships, study abroad or future careers? Your advising team will help you identify and navigate your best options.

Thanks to our integrated academic and career advising approach, you’ll be sure of receiving the right support at the right time of your undergraduate journey.

For example:

  • First-year students work with a special advising team to ensure a smooth transition into the Syracuse experience. From the moment you enroll to the end of your first year, you’ll have access to advisors who understand the questions you’ll have. Meet the first-year advisors.

  • Sophomores, juniors and seniors, you’ll work with advisors specially trained to help students navigate important steps through these years. From setting your academic course to looking ahead to career explorations, they will help you identify ways to identify, pursue and achieve your college and career aspirations. Meet the upper-level advisors.
