6.1 A Commitment to Advising
Fordham University is committed to providing sound and comprehensive advising for its students. Undergraduates need guidance on issues such as course requirements and expectations, the curriculum, registration, administrative procedures, choosing a major, planning a career, adjusting to college life, and dealing with the various stresses that affect their work. There are a number of offices on campus which assist students in these areas. At Fordham College at Rose Hill, Fordham College at Lincoln Center, and the Gabelli School of Business, an assistant dean oversees academic advising for each of the class years. In Fordham School of Professional and Continuing Studies, although most students are adults studying on a part-time basis, consultation with a dean is required prior to registration in each of the first two semesters of study and at any time thereafter if good academic standing is not maintained.
