Message from Monique Rinere, Dean of Advising

The Center for Student Advising (CSA) is pleased to welcome you to Columbia!

The CSA, located in Alfred Lerner Hall 403, is staffed with professional advisers who will work with you throughout your time at Columbia. We will help you create your academic program, think about short- and long-term plans, connect with faculty and other resources, overcome obstacles, and pursue your passions. Keep reading to learn how.

Center for Student Advising

The staff can't wait to meet you, either in a city near you for COLUMBIA 101 or during our advising sessions at the New Student Orientation Program (NSOP).
