Step 8: UNDERSTAND THE ADVISEMENT PROCESS
NYU Wagner encourages you to seek guidance from multiple sources throughout your academic career. Just as no single mentor can fulfill all of a developing professional’s needs, you will receive richer and more valuable advice from multiple advisors.
Advisement begins with the online Registration Advisement Webinars (Step 6) held prior to the start of your first term.
During the summer, you will be assigned to a Peer Advisor, who will be a guide for you and a group of your classmates. Your Peer Advisor will contact you after you have participated in a Registration Advisement Webinar.
Wagner's full-time faculty are available as a source of advisement. They can help you shape your specialization and elective courses toward your academic and professional goals, and provide awareness of career paths in your field. Students are encouraged to seek advisement from a range of faculty. Early in the first semester, students will learn more about which faculty are available for advisement in their program and/or specialization.
