Academic Advising

Academic advising enhances your experience and success at Gordon College. From your first day on campus to graduation and beyond, Gordon’s academic advisors and the Office of Academic Advising can help you on your college journey.

What does an academic advisor do?

Your academic advisor will collaborate with you to tailor your educational plan to your unique goals and interests. Together, you'll explore various academic opportunities and make strategic decisions about your coursework and extracurricular activities.

They'll help you: 

  • 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

Peer advising is always available for your advising questions, for mapping out academic plans or sorting out your requirements. Email for an online meeting.

How do I register or add and drop courses?
For incoming students, you'll start the registration process by completing the Choose Your First Major form on your Admissions portlet.  The Registrar's office will use that information to register you for your first semester. Take a look at our First Year Academic Guide for more details.

For current students, Gordon’s registration system allows you to build a calendar of courses ahead of time so that you can just click a "registration checkout" button when your registration time opens—like filling up a shopping cart before checking out. You can find instructions on how to register here. Make sure you remember to actually click the "checkout" button when your registration opens!
