Academic Advising & Planning at BGSU

Our centralized team of Academic Advisors and Planners assist students from all colleges in pursuing a degree. Advisors help you make informed decisions about course selection, understand university curriculum, build an academic schedule, and connect with academic resources to be successful throughout your time at Bowling Green State University and beyond.

Schedule an Academic Advising Appointment

Our team of Academic Advisors and Planners are available to help you throughout the semester. You can schedule a one-on-one advising appointment or you can take advantage of our Wednesday drop-in advising sessions. We also highly recommend that all students download the Navigate App. It's the easiest way to schedule an advising appointment.
