Advising and Counseling

How can the Office of Student Services help me?

Laura Lewis, Director of the OSS, at the fall 2005 ILR graduates receptionOSS counselors and advisors are available to assist students on a wide range of topics including instruction, programs and opportunities for students, faculty and staff.

Why are OSS counselors important?

The schools and colleges at Cornell University differ in some respects in their offerings, services, deadlines, policies and programs.  What is true for one school may not be the case for another.  To avoid confusion or missed opportunities, check with staff in the Office of Student Services.
