Group Advising for First-Year Students

ALL first-year students are expected to meet with their assigned college advisor during their first year. Students can fulfill this expectation by attending a group advising session led by your college advisor during the fall semester.

Group advising sessions cover essential information for all first-year students to help you get ready for spring registration and start creating your academic plan at Columbia. The one-hour sessions are small (12 students or less), so you’ll have an opportunity to meet your college advisor and other students in your major. You’ll also review your advising resources and requirements and learn how to pick classes that factor in your academic, personal, and professional goals.

After participating in a group advising session, you will:

  • Know what advising services and resources are available at Columbia and how to access them.
  • Understand how to access advising tools in Oasis and use them to choose courses, register, and develop an academic plan.
  • Have a better understanding of your degree requirements, including college-wide Liberal Arts and Sciences (LAS), major, and concentration requirements.
  • Have a better idea of what classes to register for next semester.


NOTE: Group Advising sessions take place during the month of October. For more information on scheduling an appointment with a college advisor go here.
