Student Services

The Dyson Office of Student Services serves as the main point of contact for Dyson undergraduate students and provides a full range of support services, resources, and referrals. Our team works in conjunction with the Cornell SC Johnson College of Business Undergraduate and Master’s Programs Career Management Center, the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, and Dyson faculty advisors to support Dyson students throughout their academic journey at Cornell.

Advising in the Dyson School

The Dyson School offers students a unique opportunity to work with both faculty and professional academic advisors throughout their time at Cornell. The goal is to help students in developing their personal success network that they will continue to expand as they build connections with other faculty, staff, and alumni. It is vital for students to develop meaningful relationships with both their faculty advisor and academic advisor.

Academic Advisors

Academic advisors from the Office of Student Services can assist a student in short- and long-term course planning, verification of degree requirements, provide connections to on-campus academic and wellness support services, and general support.

Students interested in participating in a global experience such as a course-based study trip, study abroad, CALS/Dyson Global Fellows summer program, or domestically through the Cornell in Washington program should contact their Office of Student Services academic advisor to start the conversation. Appointments with Dyson Academic Advisors can be scheduled through Launchpad.

Fall 2020 Updates

While we wish we could meet with you in person, our physical space in Warren Hall is currently closed. Our team is committed to providing the same high level of support and assistance and will be available daily to connect through various methods.

HOW TO CONNECT WITH YOUR ACADEMIC ADVISOR

STEP 1:
Determine if you need to make an appointment or visit drop-in hours. Appointments are for longer conversations about your academic progress, course planning, academic or personal concerns. Drop-ins should be focused on quick questions and should not take more than 5-10 minutes. If you determine that a Drop-in time is the best option, visit the Dyson Launchpad under “Connect w/ an Academic Advisor”
