Advisement and Counseling


Whether you are a recent high school graduate, a returning adult student or a transfer student, there may be times that you need support navigating your way through higher education. The Advisement and Counseling Department is here to help. The department offers counseling and advisement services to all Brookdale students. These services include academic advisement, transfer planning, career counseling, personal counseling, and crisis intervention. For convenience, some of these services are also available on-line through our Distance Advising and Counseling Program (


As part of the initial admission and registration process, after taking the basic skills test, all degree seeking (matriculated) students must meet with a counselor (student development specialist) or an Advisor to determine the courses in which they are eligible to enroll to meet program goals. Once course approvals are entered into the electronic data system, students are able to register either online or in person. Degree seeking students will be able to register for courses without approval after successfully completing 12 credits. Advisors and Counselors remain available to provide assistance throughout the student’s educational career. NOTE: While Advisors and Counselors make recommendations and in many cases formally approve courses, students are ultimately responsible and accountable for final course selection, registration, and degree completion.

For more information, or to schedule an appointment, call 732-224-2555. You may also schedule an in-person appointment via AdvisorTrac, one of the tools for students found in the MyBrookdalePortal (
