SPD students receive
advisement either by telephone or by email (in person appointments are
available if necessary for local students). To schedule a telephone
advisement appointment, call (631) 632-7050, option 1. Telephone appointments
are available at a variety of times from Monday-Thursday.
To receive advisement by email,
be sure to include your full name and Stony Brook ID number in the subject
and/or body of the email, in addition to specifically stating your advisement
questions. You can email email@example.com and expect to receive a response within two business days (Note: The
SPD office is closed Saturday and Sunday). Although you may schedule
appointments with SPD advisors as often or as seldom as you wish throughout
your program of study, you are individually responsible for meeting
Because many of your interactions with Stony Brook faculty and staff take place at a distance, your contact information
must be kept up-to-date. Students are required to notify SPD of any
address, telephone, email, or name changes so that they will continue
to receive registration information, grade reports, and other important
correspondence from the University.
You can update a postal or email address in the SOLAR System.
If you need to process a name change,
please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for instructions.
Students taking online courses are also responsible for making their email addresses are listed
correctly in Blackboard. Instructions for changing your email address can be
found in the SPD Online Resource Center (accessible in Blackboard).
Be sure that all of your correspondence contains
your full name and student ID number.
