Academic advising is an essential component of academic success. Academic advising provides students with direct links to their academic colleges, departments, and faculty.

Our advising network provides a strong backbone of support and assistance for our students. We encourage all students to utilize academic advising as a key resource to ensure you have a successful experience at Cleveland State University.
