Academic Advising

Dr. Gwyneth Rost and scholarship recipient

Students are advised to consult their academic advisors about the content and sequence of their curriculum, especially where the choice and sequencing of electives are concerned. From our undergraduate and graduate program directors and departmental staff to the School of Public Health and Health Sciences’ Academic Dean’s Office, we are here to help you address your academic questions and concerns and make the most of your UMass education.

Have an academic advising question? Contact us today.

In accordance with the UMass Amherst Fall 2020 Reopening Plan, all academic advising will be performed remotely during the fall semester. Even though we are unable to meet with you on campus, we are still here to assist you. Please contact us at one of the links below.

You can also contact the Office of the Academic Deans or Torin Moore in the Student Success Office in the School of Public Health and Health Sciences.

If you need a credit override, please email Dr. Rost with your request.
