Undergraduate Advising Appointments
Graduate Academic Advising Appointments
The Office of Academic Services is available to support faculty, staff, and students by interpreting and implementing college academic curriculum, policies, and procedures. Home to Disability Services, Academic Support, Academic Advising, and New Student Academic Programs, our staff strives to help students get the most out of their Bentley experience. We are committed to working with every student throughout their academic career to create an individualized education plan that will help them attain all the goals that they have set for themselves.
Our professional staff are proud allies of students with disabilities and the LGBTQ, International, and ALANA communities
In Solidarity with the AAPI Community
The Office of Academic Services stands in solidarity with our Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander (AAPI) students. We do not condone anti-Asian racism, acts of violence, or any other act of hate. We vow to support all students and treat them with the dignity and respect all members of our community deserve. We will support you, advocate for you, and continue to educate ourselves around issues of racism and discrimination.
Black Lives Matter
First and foremost, Black Lives Matter. In keeping with our mission of advising and supporting students throughout their academic career at Bentley, we want to acknowledge the importance of students being fully respected, heard, and seen by their advisors and educators. It is critical that students feel safe to attend Bentley, and approach our office, as their full selves. Unfortunately, systemic racism and individual bias stand in the way of these needs. Today, more than ever, it is incumbent on us to ensure that we conduct ourselves in a manner that is conducive to an equitable environment for our students. We must be intentional in the ways we work both in service of, and in partnership with, our underrepresented students.
We also acknowledge that we must hold space for our students and colleagues of color, especially the Black staff, faculty and students who are hurting. This includes paying our respects to those whose lives have recently, and throughout history, been cut short due to racial violence.
Moreover, we feel compelled to tell students who are under siege, angered and harmed by anti-black violence and racist backlash to the nation’s ongoing protests that we stand by you. We all have a role to play in the work of anti-racism. That is why we are committing as an office to making sure that we continue moving beyond words, and support you through our actions.
