Academic Advising

Advising at Colby-Sawyer empowers you to shape your own educational experience as you work to achieve the college’s learning outcomes and your own personal, academic and career goals. Encouraging initiative and responsibility is central to an advisor’s role. Supported by your advisor, you assume the primary role in fulfilling curricular requirements, accessing campus resources, identifying appropriate off-campus learning experiences and outlining the steps necessary to achieve your goals. Advisors provide guidance and serve as a resource for academic information and a link to campus and community experiences that support your learning and growth.

At Colby-Sawyer, you are assigned an academic advisor who has specialized knowledge of your major and related career fields.
