Academic Advisement

Academic Advisement and transitioning to the academic rigors of SUNY Geneseo is of the highest priority to the AOP department.   As such, the process of advising students regarding the requirements for academic success is approached in a holistic manner.  This process includes, but is not limited to:

  • Transiting to college
  • Academic planning 
  • Academic decision-making
  • Identify options and resources
  • Learning the academic policies and procedures of SUNY Geneseo
  • Making informed decisions

AOP Counselors, in collaboration with the Office of the Dean of the College, provides direct advisement to pre-major students as well as walk-in support to all AOP students. AOP Counselors along with designated academic department faculty members, participate in academic advisement training sessions each year.  During these sessions, updated information regarding changes in course, major or minor requirements are addressed.  In this way, AOP professional staff are kept abreast of all areas of academic development at SUNY Geneseo.

Every semester, the AOP department provides to students a calendar of important dates of which they must be aware. This calendar allows students to know in advance deadline dates for the declaration of their major(s) as well as important information regarding academic advisement, registration, final exams and collegewide vacation dates.
