Getting academic advisement is a critical part of supporting you throughout your college experience! The goal of advising is to help you make decisions, manage your educational goals and support you towards your future professional career path.  Academic Advising at Montclair State University is unique. Once you have declared a major, you are assigned to a faculty advisor that can answer your questions about courses, applied learning opportunities and confirm you are on the road to graduation.

At CHSS, we want you to develop a strong and collaborative relationship with your faculty advisor. The College of Humanities and Social Sciences offers additional problem-solving support for students who have advisement questions. In addition to your faculty advisor, you can Meet with an Advisor at CHSS if you have unique concerns. Our advising philosophy is to bring you the tools for success, which ultimately allows each student to pro-actively drive their educational outcomes.

Remember, you drive your educational experience and career development. The tools are all here for you to succeed!

Use Degree Works to track your progress which you can access through your NEST account.
