The Academic & Transfer Advising Center is committed to assisting students in the development of meaningful academic plans that are compatible with their professional and life goals. Academic Advisors guide students from their first contact with the College through graduation and beyond. We introduce incoming students to the opportunities and resources of the College, inform new and returning students of the requirements of academic programs, assist students with the selection of a major and the appropriate courses to ensure academic success, and counsel students regarding transfer opportunities.

Advising Center Services

All registered students are assigned an academic advisor who may be a member of the faculty, professional staff, or an advising counselor in the Academic & Transfer Advising. The name and contact information for one’s advisor is available on the Student Center page of Bay Navigator. Advisor assignments are generally made during the fourth week of the fall and spring semesters.

The services of the Academic & Transfer Advising Center are available to all students at MassBay.
