Academic Advising

Welcome to CGS

At CGS, academic advising is a full-time focus.

Our dedicated, professional academic advising staff advocate for your growth and academic achievement—from before you arrive on campus through your transition to junior year.

The Team

Meet Your Academic Advisor

A partner to help pave the way to success.

Your CGS academic advisor will be your partner throughout the two-year program. They’ll get to know your goals and aspirations, and you’ll work with them to help develop your own personalized growth plan for your time at BU.
