Advising and Counseling

Academic Advising

Academic Advisors are the professionals who help you select the courses that meet your educational goals.  In addition, Academic Advisors can approve an entire degree program leading to graduation and transfer from Brookdale.  They can also show you how to register online for future semesters so you don’t need to get approval each time.

You can simply walk in (2nd floor of the CAR building) and our Advising Associates will direct you to an Advisor for your academic advising needs. There are no appointments for academic advising. However, please be aware that wait times for advising typically get longer as we approach the beginning of each semester.



Counselors are the college faculty who can help you with your adjustment to college and personal development needs. Counselors focus on supporting your college success by helping you set personal goals and select the best major and career to meet those goals. In addition, the Counselors can help you with personal difficulties that you might be experiencing inside or outside of school, such as relationship problems, substance use issues, family difficulties, and personal crises.

Also located on the second floor of the CAR building, counseling services are primarily by appointment.  Contact the Advising Associates, either in person or by calling 732-224-2555, and they can make arrangements for you to see a Counselor.

We’re striving to make your college experience the best that it can possibly be, because your success is our most important goal.
