Academic Advising Center

The Academic Advising Center helps students plan their coursework, choose a major and set educational goals. We take part in orientations for new freshmen and transfer students, and assist continuing students as they choose courses and determine their progress towards completing a degree.

We provide the following services:

  • Explain the General Education Curriculum to students
  • Introduce students to the many possible majors at Old Westbury
  • Help students make an informed choice of major
  • Facilitate Academic Mapping workshops for students preparing to begin their sophomore year
  • Assist transfer students in understanding how their previous coursework was evaluated
  • Administer placement tests in Math and Writing and explain the results to students
  • Provide monitoring and support to students in academic jeopardy or on probation
