Academic Advising

For the Class of 2026

Students at FCLC and FCRH are advised and supported by professional advisers throughout their undergraduate careers, in close contact with departments, programs, the assistant dean for student support and success, and other areas across the University. Advising for all undergraduates in the colleges is designed to support student success in keeping with Fordham's values and mission, and it includes robust faculty mentoring.

For the Classes of 2023, 2024, and 2025

In their first year at Fordham, most undergraduates in the classes of 2023, 2024, and 2025 were supported by core or transfer advisers—faculty members and administrators who have a general knowledge of the core curriculum and college degree requirements and policies.

Upon declaring a major, students receive their primary advising on all matters pertaining to their major from their department or program, while class deans—and the assistant dean for student support and success—advise students on fulfilling their core curriculum and graduation requirements. Students are encouraged to consult their major advisers regularly to discuss their academic and professional progress.

Academic Advising for Student-Athletes

The primary mission of the Office of Academic Advising for Student-Athletes is to provide Fordham University’s more than 500 NCAA student-athletes with the resources and direction needed to achieve their scholastic potential and to prepare them for postgraduate scholastic, athletic, and career opportunities. The office brings a breadth and depth of experience in athletics and higher education to their many responsibilities. These responsibilities include general academic counseling, eligibility monitoring, assistance in maintaining satisfactory progress toward degrees, and course scheduling. Mid- and post-semester grade reviews are conducted every semester.

The office has six full-time administrators, all of whom are dedicated to working with and for Fordham’s student-athletes.
