Our experienced team of professional advisors help undergraduate students create academic plans so that they can make the most of their time on campus and efficiently achieve their educational goals. Students at Emerson have diverse options when it comes to course selection, and our dedicated advisors ensure that each student can make the informed decisions necessary for a fulfilling academic experience. We connect students to the wide array of college-wide resources so that they can chart the best path forward on their academic journey. We also facilitate the mentorship provided by faculty advisors—relationships that often last long after graduation.
The Iwasaki Library is your gateway to authoritative information on any subject. We can connect you with readings and reserve items for courses, book and movie recommendations for leisure hours, and research tools for passion projects and current events.

Students may encounter obstacles or difficulties associated with college life—academic, financial, personal, interpersonal, or wellness—or simply seek greater connection and support. Emerson has fantastic resources designed to address the holistic needs of students.
The Office of Student Success helps students to explore their options, navigate campus systems, and connect to services, supports, and each other. And sometimes, we just listen.
The Office of the Registrar manages academic records, certifies student enrollment, and issues transcripts and diplomas. Additionally, we evaluate transfer credits, confirm graduation eligibility, schedule classrooms, and create the academic calendar.
Student Accessibility Services (SAS), formerly the Disability Services Office, strives to create an inclusive campus environment for students, allowing them to have full access to courses, programs, and activities during their time at Emerson College. We coordinate accommodations and support services that promote equal access for undergraduate and graduate students with disabilities.
The Student Care and Support Office receives referrals from students, faculty, staff, etc. about students of concern. The Office works with key partners on campus to provide support for those students with a goal of helping them succeed academically and personally.
