As undergraduate advisors, we are here to help you plan your schedule, define your educational objectives, and make sure that you are properly satisfying departmental requirements. You will meet with your advisor twice a year for your advisement appointment, but feel free to come and see us any time Monday through Friday from 9 AM–5 PM if you have questions or just to say hello!

Remember, we are here as part of the support system that is available to you at Pratt, and we welcome your questions and conversations. Ultimately, however, your academic career is in your hands.

Undergraduate Advisors

Entering freshmen are assigned an advisor immediately upon acceptance. You are assigned an advisor based on your chosen major. Your advisor is listed on your degree audit as well as in your online worksheet. Advisors see students on a walk-in basis; there is no need to make an appointment. During advisement periods, an appointment day will be assigned to you. It appears both on your my.pratt.edu dashboard and your degree audit. You may come in at any time during your advisor's office hours on that appointment date.

Please check your Pratt email regularly. This is our primary form of communication with you; we send important information about advisement and registration to your Pratt emails and expect you to be responsible for that information as well as important deadlines which are listed in the academic calendar. Please note: once you are a Pratt student, we will not respond to or use non-Pratt email.
