Undergraduate Academic Advising

Clarkson University provides holistic and inclusive academic advising assistance to all students. Every student is provided with a major-specific academic advisor, and some students have additional advising based on their career aspirations, such as pre-law and pre-health advising. 

Clarkson University is among the universities with the best retention rates for undergraduate students in the country. That means that Clarkson students choose to stay at Clarkson, rather than transfer or leave college completely.


You are able to locate your academic advisor’s name on the “Student Center” tab in myCU. Click on the “details” link to find out additional information about the advisors, such as their role and contact information.

Every undergraduate student at CU is assigned an academic advisor and they are a great resource for students. Students are required to meet with their academic advisor a minimum of one time per semester and are strongly encouraged to meet with their academic advisor on a regular basis. Meetings with academic advisors are a great time to ask questions about plans of study and co-curricular opportunities, such as study abroad and undergraduate research.

Student Achievement Services offers a suite of services in the areas of student records, financial aid, and student accounts. Procedural information, deadlines, and how to tutorials may be found on the SAS website.
