Academic Advising

Welcome to the Division of Academic Advisement at Pace University! I am so proud to be a part of the advising community at Pace, which is dedicated to providing proactive and holistic support to students throughout each stage of their academic journey. 

Students will receive highly personalized guidance from an advisor to help them create a successful and engaging experience in academic, co-curricular, professional, and personal realms. This specialized support begins in a student’s very first semester and continues until we can all celebrate their successful graduation. Advisors also receive ongoing support through close collaborations across their respective specializations and trainings in best practices so that they are well prepared to continually meet students’ needs.

This website offers an array of informational materials and important links for both students and advisors. Please explore the section that is most relevant to you and take advantage of all that it has to offer. 

I look forward to supporting a successful advising experience for students and staff across the Pace community! If you have any questions or concerns that I can help with, please reach out to me at

All my very best,
Melissa Grant, MSED
Associate Dean of Advisement
