Meeting with an Advisor

To schedule an appointment with an advisor in Undergraduate Advising, please call 617-521-2474 or send us an email at least one business day in advance. Appointments are most productive when both the advisor and the student are prepared for the appointment.

Cancelling appointments:

  • If you are unable to keep your appointment for any reason, please call to cancel and/or re-schedule. If you are running late, please call to notify the advising staff. If you are more than 10 minutes late, you may be required to re-schedule your appointment.
  • The academic advisors are involved in many activities at Simmons, in addition to their advising responsibilities. Because of this, you may not be able to meet with your advisor on short notice or receive an immediate email or phone reply. Your advisor will get back to you as soon as possible.

Incoming and current Dix Scholar Nursing students receive advising from the School of Nursing and Health Sciences.

First-year students are assigned to a Simmons PLAN Advisor for their first year at Simmons. PLAN Advisors are a mix of faculty and professional advisors who are trained on PLAN requirements and are well-versed on all majors and programs offered at Simmons. First-year students receive an email from their PLAN advisor before June Orientation.

First-year students enrolled in both the Honors program and the School of Nursing and Health Sciences will be assigned a PLAN Advisor who is also well-versed on specific SNHS program requirements.
