Academic Advising

The Academic Advising office provides overall communication to Stony Brook undergraduates about academic advising and the evaluation of transfer credits for general education requirements.  They help students develop their academic plans for graduation and work with students in academic difficulty.  In addition, their office evaluates transfer credits and serves as a central communicator regarding academic deadlines, policies, and events to all undergraduates. 

Their office advises sophomores, juniors, seniors, and second bachelor degree students in the College of Arts & Sciences, College of Business, School of Communication and Journalism and School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences.

Priority Registration

Veteran students receive the benefit of Priority Registration. Priority Registration allows students to enroll in their classes  much sooner than other students within their class year. As a result, Veteran students are more likely to get into the courses they want. Dates and information are available through SOLAR enrollment appointments (typically early November and early April).

To take advantage of this policy, Veteran students are responsible for:

  • Preparing their class schedules before registration
  • Clearing any holds on their SOLAR account before registering

When arranging your schedule, it is important to consider the necessary time to travel between classes.
