The CNS Advising Center sends out a newsletter every other Wednesday during the semester to all CNS students. Please check your UMass email to access it for important information about the academic calendar, events, scholarship opportunities and announcements.


The dean and advisors are available for appointments in person and via Zoom (Make an Appointment using Navigate) and for questions by email (cnsadvisingcenter@umass.edu or email your advisor directly). We will reply to telephone messages as quickly as we can, but replies to telephone messages may not be the same day.

Please check your email SPAM folder regularly (especially if you are expecting a reply that you are not receiving) as it is a known problem that some of our emails go to junk mail. Identify and move non-junk messages to your inbox so your email program can learn which messages are not junk.
