Is this your first year at ASU?

First-year students (not including new transfer students or online students) receive advising support in Armstrong Hall.

First-year advising

At the School of Social Transformation student success is our first priority. Our undergraduate and graduate advisors assist you in developing meaningful plans to meet your individual academic, career, and personal goals.

Together with your advisor, you will develop a path to academic excellence and independence in a supportive environment where staff are aware of visible and invisible multicultural identities.
