Find My Advisor


BGSU provides academic advising to undergraduate students through students’ colleges and departments. You may have one advisor or a team of advisors. If you are enrolled in multiple majors or programs, you may have an advisor for each specific program. This is to ensure that you receive advising from individuals who know the details of your programs well. Contact any of these individuals when you have questions or concerns related to your academics. Your advisor can help you develop your graduation plan, select courses, navigate the university, and achieve personal, educational, and career goals.

How to Find Your Advisor:

  1. Log-in to MyBGSU
  2. Select “Student Center”
  3. On the right hand side of the page, you will see a blue box with the heading “Advisors”
  4. In this box, you will see the name(s) of your advisor(s). All students will be assigned an advisor within their college; some students may have multiple advisors for various programs across campus.

How to Contact Your Advisor:

  • You can contact your advisor at the phone number listed under their name in the blue box.
  • To email your advisor, click on “details” and select the advisor you wish to email. 

If you do not hear back from your advisor in a reasonable timeframe, please contact your college office at the phone number or email address listed.  Keep in mind that most advisors typically work during regular business hours, Monday-Friday from 8-5, and response times may be slower over weekends and during holidays.
