Dickinson's approach to the liberal arts empowers you to make active choices at every stage of your education. The Office of Academic Advising is here to help you make good decisions as you design a successful four-year experience.

At Dickinson, you work directly with a member of our faculty who serves as your academic advisor. Your relationship with your advisor is vital, and the one-on-one guidance that advisors provide is a unique virtue of a Dickinson education. The staff of the advising office provides an additional layer of support for students and their advisors.

Over the course of our four-year curriculum, certain core values remain constant, such as our resolve to combine breadth and depth, our commitment to provide a useful education, and our determination to foster a global perspective. At the same time, we recognize that your needs will change as you progress towards graduation.
