Every student is assigned an academic advisor.  Your academic advisor will assist you with any questions you may have and may make referrals to another office on campus, when appropriate. As you go through your four years at Bryant University, there are a number of decisions to make when it comes to planning your academic program. The Undergraduate Advising Office provides multiple workshops as well as one-on-one advising to assist you with program planning. From Orientation through Graduation, we are available to work closely with you to be sure you are taking advantage of all the opportunities Bryant has to offer. Throughout your time at Bryant you and your advisor will build a solid relationship to guide you through each year.

Your Academic Advisor can assist with a variety of services including:

You should meet with your Academic Advisor at least one time each semester. However, we encourage students to meet with their advisor more often to make the most of our resources. Advising is a partnership. Given this, you should plan for your advising meetings – we will! Here are some tips.

Preparing for an Academic Advising Appointment

The Undergraduate Advising Office continues to develop programs for students that will assist you in your academic planning. Your academic advisors will send e-mail and/or Canvas announcements to inform you of upcoming workshops throughout each year. Be sure to check your Bryant email and Canvas for important announcements.
