Academic Advisement

CUNY Baccalaureate is committed to providing the individual advice and assistance students need at every step throughout their degree programs. Academic advisors are available to answer questions about course work, distribution requirements, mentors, and other matters related to their degrees not covered by the Registrar or the faculty mentor. Each student is assigned an advisor based on their last name. The advisors conduct admissions appointments, credit checks, and graduation audits.  Appointments for current students can be made by calling the main office.
