Academic Advisor

Located in 180 Renaissance Park, the Office of Student Academic Affairs is a central place where undergraduate students in the College of Social Sciences and Humanities can go with all academic questions. This office is a good first place to go for any kind of academic concern. Academic advisors provide general guidance on academic matters and assist students in their progress from orientation through graduation.

College of Social Sciences and Humanities’ academic advisors for majors are listed here. Your academic advisor will assist you with course selection and semester planning (co-op timing, etc.). Faculty mentors will assist you with discipline related needs such as academic goals, and graduate and professional planning. Your degree audit can be found through your myNortheastern portal Self-Service tab “My Degree Audit”.   To make an appointment with your academic advisor, please do so either in person (180 Renaissance Park), by phone  (617.373.3980) or through your myNortheastern portal Self-Service tab.
