Effective Monday, March 16th, all scheduled advising appointments with anyone in the CAS Advising at 100 Bay State Rd. will be virtual appointments; you should not attend scheduled appointments with our office in person. You will hear directly from the person the appointment is with regarding how the virtual appointment will be conducted.

For as long as classes are restricted to on-line you should consider the following guidelines in regard to advising questions & concerns:

First year students should reach out directly to their first year advisors via email with questions or appointment requests.

Sophomores, juniors and seniors should first direct inquiries their major advisor.

All CAS students may also contact CAS Advising through email ( with questions or concerns.

We know this is a challenging time and we are committed to continue helping you with your long-term planning while also serving as a resource for the rest of the semester. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.

The College of Arts & Sciences (CAS) Academic Advising provides professional academic advising and mentoring to CAS undergraduate students. We are a group of advising generalists who help guide students in a multitude of ways throughout their college experience. We can assist a student in identifying their academic advisor, provide guidance in choosing a major or planning a degree program, help a student interpret College regulations, standards, and policies, and help a student navigate academic concerns. We can assist with navigating external credit and transfer course evaluations, help a student plan for degree completion and we certify all CAS undergraduates for graduation. We also assist students with individualized referrals to our campus partners for assistance in academic, personal, and career counseling; academic skills development; and financial aid.
