Welcome, Class of 2018, from the Center for Student Advising (CSA)!

The CSA will be a fantastic resource for you throughout your time at Columbia. We provide an integrated advising experience for all students in Columbia College and The Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science. We look forward to officially welcoming you to campus in the fall and accompanying you on your journey for the next four years, during which you will explore, discover, and change. In the meantime, I offer you some advice prior to your arrival on campus.

Sincerely,
Monique Rinere
Dean of Advising

Advising at Columbia

Your CSA advising dean will offer advice, answer questions, help solve problems, and brainstorm about courses of study, life plans, or anything else you may need during your time at Columbia. In mid-August, you will receive an email from the CSA with the name of your advising dean. After the email introduction, you will set up a time using our online scheduling system to meet face-to-face during the New Student Orientation Program. We urge you to read through the relevant sections of the Academic Planning Guide in advance of that meeting.
