Freshman advisors assist freshmen in the transition to college life by mentoring them during their first two semesters at Hunter College. Particular attention is given to each student’s academic progress and any concerns about attaining academic success. Students may contact the Freshman Advisors by email or may call (212) 772-4882.
Freshman Advisors are only assigned to first-time freshmen. All other students, including those that have previously attended another institution may meet with any advisor in the Office of Advising Services, Hunter East, Room 1119. First-year students enrolled in the Macaulay Honors College or the SEEK program should contact those offices for additional advising information.
New freshmen may visit MyHunter for more information about their first-year advisor. Students unable to access their MyHunter page or who do not see advisor information listed should email the Freshman Advising Team at firstname.lastname@example.org. All emails should be sent from a Hunter email address and include the student's first and last name.
Please note that advisor assignments and freshman advising hours are subject to change.
