The Advising Team is here for you. Advising Teams help you map out the best route to graduation, four-year colleges and careers, by combining the knowledge of professional advisors with the expertise of faculty.
Your LaGuardia student journey begins with your personal Graduation Plan, created with guidance from faculty in First Year Seminar (FYS). Your Advising Team is dedicated to helping you achieve your
educational and career goals. Advising Teams continually guide students through curricula and
program requirements while exploring educational and career aspirations. Your Graduation Plan is updated, revisited and revised along the way.

Consultation with your Advising Team is strongly recommended prior to completing and submitting the forms listed below.
There are two mechanisms for students to drop courses: Drop and Official Withdrawal. During the change of program period, students must log in to CUNYfirst to drop a course or courses. The course will not appear on the student’s transcript. You may however be responsible for part of the tuition cost, depending on how long you attended and were registered for class. If you need to withdraw from a course or the college after change of program (that is, your major), you must go to CUNYfirst. If you withdraw during the official withdrawal period, you will receive a “W” as a grade and will be responsible for all tuition charges. Instructions and student guides are available on: http://www.laguardia.edu/CUNYfirst/Student-Guides/
Students who wish to change their major must file the appropriate form. Changing your major is an important decision and should be discussed with your Advising Team prior to making any changes. The procedure to change your major is as follows:

2. Complete the form with proper Major Codes and get appropriate signatures, if necessary.
3. After you have obtained the proper signatures, return this form to the Enrollment Service Center in room C 107
