Academic Advising

First-Semester Student Advising through Connect @ OCC

Students new to the College are invited to orientation and first-year student advising after they complete their placement testing and immunization documentation. The half-day orientation session includes advising, scheduling and registration for classes. New students receive their permanent faculty-advisor assignment in their first semester. For information, please call the Connect @ OCC office at 315-498-2904 or email Connect @ OCC at  ConnectOCC.

Continuing Student Advising

The Center for Advising and First-Year Students, in cooperation with faculty advisors, currently coordinates the advising process for all continuing students. Advisors in the Advising Center are available for consultation each semester and throughout the summer during regularly scheduled office hours. Although advisors are available to help, it is ultimately the student’s responsibility to pursue the courses which will fulfill graduation requirements.
