Welcome to Freshman Advising!

A group of people sitting on the grass.

Welcome to Queens College – a world of exploration and discovery! The college has welcomed over 1,900 new freshmen for the 2018-2019 academic year. The Academic Advising Center is here to accompany our new students through their academic journeys. We hope to serve as a user-friendly resource to assist our current freshmen, as well as prospective students and their families, to navigate academic life.

Incoming Freshmen

Your Freshman Advising and Registration Session is the first step in promoting the successful transition to life at Queens College. Our goal is to help acclimate you to the college’s academic requirements and co-curricular programs, as well as introduce you to resources to ensure your academic success. The Freshman Session consists of an informative presentation followed by an individual academic advising session to create your first semester programming, as well as long-term academic planning. To best assist you in this process, we have outlined important steps to get started. Please review the 10 Steps to Complete Before & After your Virtual Freshman Advising and Registration Session.

Continuing Freshmen

Now that you have begun your first year at Queens College, you will need to focus on your academic success. To do so, you will need to develop time management and study skills, writing skills and, most important, your organizational skills. These are all essential components for academic success.

The Academic Advising Center’s website highlights essential information to assist in your academic journey beyond freshman year. We encourage all freshmen to take initiative, ask questions, and educate themselves about the many great opportunities and resources offered at Queens College.

Please tour our website and visit the Academic Advising Center in Kiely Hall, Room 217, if you have any questions or would like to make an appointment to speak to an advisor.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
