Academic Advisors are the professionals who help you select the courses that meet your educational goals. In addition, Academic Advisors can approve an entire degree program leading to graduation and transfer from Brookdale. They can also show students how to register online for future semesters so you don’t need to obtain approval each term.
Students may walk in to the second floor of the CAR Building and our Advising Associates will direct you to an Advisor for your academic advising needs. While there will be no appointments for academic advising, wait times for advising typically get longer before the beginning of the semester.
Counselors are the college faculty who can assist with your adjustment to college and personal development. Counselors focus on supporting your college success by helping you set personal goals and select the best major and career to reach them. In addition, the Counselors can help you with personal difficulties that you might be experiencing inside or outside of school, such as relationship problems, substance use issues, family difficulties, and personal crises.
Counseling is located on the second floor of the CAR building. Counseling services are by appointment only. For an appointment, contact the Advising Associates, either in person, or by calling 732-224-2555.
