Administrative Advising

Colgate University has a unique dual-advising system for students. All students have an academic (faculty) adviser and an administrative adviser. The administrative adviser is commonly referred to as the student’s “dean.” Administrative deans work with their advisees to assist them with navigating Colgate.
The nature of the advising relationship is dependent upon the specific needs a student may have at a given time. Administrative deans are available to consult with students on a variety of matters and some of the issues that are most commonly addressed are listed below. Certainly, students are encouraged to contact their administrative dean if other issues, concerns, or possibilities exist that are not listed below.

The administrative deans are members of the Committee on Standards and Academic Standing. The CSAS typically meets weekly during the academic year to review petitions requesting an exception to an existing deadline or policy.
