All students newly admitted to Lang are assigned an academic advisor (a guidance counselor), a faculty advisor (a professor), and a peer advisor (an upper-level student). Your faculty advisor will be teaching one of your courses during your first semester and will serve as an academic mentor throughout your studies at Lang. Your peer advisor, referred to as a seminar fellow, will facilitate your transition to college and help you build important skills in a weekly workshop. If you have questions about advising resources, contact Academic Advising at 212.229.5100 x2264 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Students admitted to the dual-degree BA/BFA program with Parsons
New students entering the dual-degree BA/BFA program with Parsons register through Parsons for all courses. Students register for a first-year advising seminar and learn about studio requirements through the studio advisor.
Students admitted to the dual-degree BA/BFA program with Jazz
Jazz placement examinations are administered during orientation week. As a new student entering the dual-degree BA/BFA program with Jazz, you should not register for liberal arts classes until your placement in music classes has been confirmed. You therefore register for all courses—music and liberal arts—during orientation week.
All BA/BFA students: Read the dual-degree BA/BFA Welcome Letter.
