Schedule an Advising Session

Your Guided Pathways (GP) advisor regularly reaches out to you through your student email with direct links to book an appointment on campus or virtually. To access your email account, log-in to myCTState and look for “View/Access College Email.” If you cannot find any emails from your advisor, please reach out to the Guided Pathways Advising main office.

Before requesting an appointment, identify your student type from the categories below and review advising requirements. Note: These may be different for each student type.

New Student
I've never attended another college or university after receiving my high school diploma.

Welcome! Students must first apply and be admitted to CT State before meeting with an advisor. Prior to your meeting, please ensure placement documents and transcripts are on file with the Admissions office. This will ensure you receive the best advising experience. Without placement information and/or transfer credits in the system, the GP Advising team will be limited in how they can assist you.

Once you’ve received your acceptance email from Admissions, you’re ready to make your New Student Enrollment appointment. Here you'll learn more about myCTState and register for your first semester classes.  


Times don't work for you? Please email  to set up an alternate time.  

Tip: It’s best to have set up your myCTState account prior to your appointment. Our priority is to ensure a smooth transition into college.

Questions? Please email  or call 203-575-8025 and we’ll be happy to assist you!

Congratulations and we look forward to seeing you soon!

Continuing Student
I am currently enrolled and taking credit courses at CT State.

As a continuing student, you are encouraged to connect with your Guided Pathways (GP) advisor to prepare for registration, AND your faculty advisor or program coordinator to learn more about your degree path. To guarantee time with your advisor, please schedule an appointment. Advisors can meet with you in-person, virtually, or over the phone. Same day service is not guaranteed without an appointment.

GP advisors are assigned by your degree/certificate program. To schedule an appointment, find your advisor listed in the "Meet the Team" section on this page.

During the academic year, current students planning for the next semester should meet with their faculty advisor for course selection.
