Academic Advising

Please read below for important COVID-19 changes to advising.

Even though your spring semester has been radically changed, we’re still looking forward to the next steps in your academic life. Because of the transition to remote learning and living, we’ve changed a few key registration dates and we’re moving advising online.

Academic Advising will now happen at a distance, but as we say around here, “distance doesn’t have to mean disconnection.” Your academic advisor will be reaching out to schedule a time to meet, either by phone or video. Be sure to schedule your meeting before your registration time opens so that your advisor will be able to approve your courses. If you still need additional advising, email and we’ll follow up to schedule an appointment.

New registration dates are posted on my.gordon. Visit the student tab to see your midterm grade report as well as instructions about updated online forms, starting with the course withdrawal form.

The new deadline to withdraw from full semester courses with a W grade is Friday, April 3. Just like in any other semester, communicate with your professor and your advisor about whether withdrawing from a course is a good decision. The midterm grade is only a snapshot of your performance and there still may be enough assignments and time to bring your grade up.

Peer advising is still available for mapping out academic plans or sorting out your requirements. Email for an online meeting. Deciding and academic advising is also available. Email with your questions or to schedule an online appointment.

Academic advising is an important part of your learning experience at Gordon. Your faculty advisor and the Office of Academic Advising are here to collaborate with you in this process. Together, you will:

  • Clarify your academic interests and goals
  • Design your educational plan
  • Understand how major and core courses fit together for a solid liberal arts degree
  • Connect your academic program with your vocation and career
