AdvisementAt Long Island University’s Brooklyn Campus, we are with you every step of the way when it comes to helping you choose a major and ensuring that you meet the requirements for your area of study. Most entering students are automatically assigned to the Office of Student Development and Retention for advisement during their first year.

The Office of Student Development and Retention is a comprehensive resource center that provides entering, transfer and continuing students with information, guidance and the resources needed to make a successful adjustment to college life.

The Office is staffed with professional counselors who provide individualized assistance with issues such as what to choose as your major and what courses you should take. Counselors are available to speak with incoming students during regular office hours as well as during other special Campus events.
