Contact Student Services

SC&I's Office of Student Services provides academic, personal, and career support and student engagement opportunities to undergraduate degree, graduate degree, and non-degree students in SC&I academic programs.

In addition to supporting students, the Office of Student Services provides ongoing administrative support to the academic departments and faculty in SC&I for student-related issues, including special permission assignments, special projects, and resolving enrollment problems.

Office Hours and Location

For the health and safety of our students and staff, the SC&I Student Services office will follow university safety guidelines and recommendations for masking and social distancing. Thus, all students will be required to wear a mask or appropriate face covering when visiting the Student Services office (CI – 214) in person.

Undergraduate Advising

Advising During the Add/Drop Period and Pre-registration Periods

Undergraduate advisors strongly encourage students to seek assistance virtually during add/drop and preregistration. Student questions and concerns can be handled more efficiently by visiting our advising live chat, calling the office at 848-932-7550, or by emailing the undergraduate advising team at undergrad@comminfo.rutgers.edu.

Undergraduate students who have general questions or need academic information can visit LiveChat to connect with an undergraduate advisor. Do not include personal information, as the LiveChat display is public.

  • The LiveChat is available during the following days and hours of the add/drop and pre-registration periods:
    • Monday, 9:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. & 1:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.

Advising outside of the add/drop and preregistration periods

SC&I academic advising will continue to be offered both remotely and in person, allowing our students the greatest extent of flexibility. Students can book an appointment with an undergraduate SC&I advisor, visit the office (CI-214) during our walk-in advising hours, or call or email us.

Students can schedule an academic advising appointment using the SC&I Appointment Scheduler at https://outlook.office365.com/owa/calendar/sci-sss@comminfo.rutgers.edu/bookings/ . Students who schedule academic advising appointments may have the option of an in-person session or a virtual session based on the availability of academic advisors.

In-person walk-in advising in CI-214 is available during the following days/times (after the add/drop and preregistration period):

  • Monday, 9:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. & 2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
  • Tuesday, 9:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. & 2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
