What We Do

The Office of Undergraduate Advising serves all undergraduate students who have questions about academics at Simmons College. 

All first-year students are assigned to a PLAN Advisor during their first year at Simmons. Each PLAN Advisor has extensive knowledge of the PLAN requirements and is well-versed in all academic departments across Simmons.

At the end of the student's first year, they will be transitioned to a faculty advisor in their intended major(s) or department.

Undergraduate Advising is also responsible for the following:

  • Facilitating PLAN Advisor training 
  • Coordinating Academic Warnings
  • Managing the advisor assignment process for first-year students and rising sophomore students
  • Representing the office at Admissions events
  • Creating student programming around the advising process
