Transfer Student Advising

Congratulations on your acceptance to Montclair State, and welcome to University College! We know that transitioning into a new environment at a new school can be challenging, and we are here to help make your transition as smooth as possible. Our goal is to ensure you have the necessary tools and information needed to successfully begin your educational journey here at the University. 

Your first step toward academic success is meeting your new academic advisor, where you will discuss your educational and career goals, register for classes and continue developing your academic plan. Here, you will also discuss the University’s General Education Requirements, review which requirements are needed for certain programs, and learn more about different campus resources to help you navigate Montclair State efficiently.

Who Is My Advisor?

To learn who your Academic Advisor is, you will first need to log onto NEST using your NetID and password. There, you can use DegreeWorks to view your Advisor assignment in the top left column of your degree audit.

If your advisor is not listed, please contact us directly via email at, visiting our Live Chat, or by giving us a call at 973-655-7114.
