Drop-In Hours | Will resume August 2021 (Schedule TBA)

Drop-in hours will resume August 2021. Briefly meet one-on-one with your advising dean. Drop-ins are first come, first served.

Appointment Scheduling

Make an appointment with your advising dean (select Arts & Sciences Student Services on that page). Incoming first-year and transfer students will not be able to meet with an advising dean until July 6th.

  • Enter your Cornell email so an invitation will automatically be sent to you once the appointment is scheduled.
  • For academic concerns related to your major, contact your faculty advisor or the Director of Undergraduate Studies for the respective major/s.
  • For academic concerns related to your courses, contact your instructors.


Advising deans help students explore academic resources, curriculum and understand the academic requirements of the College of Arts & Sciences. You can also discuss academic support resources as well as any challenges you face.

Faculty advisors are your go-to source for information about major requirements. You can find your faculty advisor in Student Center under "program advisor."

Peer Ambassadors are assigned to all first-year students and can answer questions from a student perspective to ease the transition from high school to college. Learn more about Peer Ambassadors.

Director of Undergraduate Studies (DUS) in each academic department is also available to help plan a path toward a particular major. Contact DUS.

Office of Undergraduate Biology (OUB) advises on academics and research for all biology majors in both A&S and CALS. Learn more about OUB.
