Academic Advising Center

Academic Advising Center at SUNY Old Westbury

The Academic Advising Center assistants students as they choose a major, plan their coursework, and set educational and career goals.  We offer guidance and support to students and help them take advantage of the resources and opportunities available at Old Westbury.

Spring 2020 Update

The advisors in the Academic Advising Center are still available to meet students virtually for advising and support. Students can also email advising [at] with questions.

We are able to offer advising online through Microsoft Teams. Microsoft Teams can be accessed either through your Outlook email on a laptop/tablet using or through the Microsoft Teams app which you can download to your smartphone.

If you already have a scheduled advising appointment, please contact your advisor through your OW email for further instructions.

Sophomores and Liberal Arts majors who would like to schedule an academic advising appointment, you may still do so using the appointment scheduling link sent by Yumi Nicholson on 3/02 to your OW email. All appointments will be held virtually through MS Teams unless you contact the advisor for alternative options.

NOTE: Teams does require data or WiFi to run. If you do not have sufficient access to either of these, you may still schedule an appointment but please let the advisor know so you may work out another option for advising.
