Academic Advising

Academic Advising is an integral part of undergraduate education. Academic advisors are here to provide the student with resources, guidance and support to achieve their academic, career and personal goals.

The advisor is your key to learning what is available for you to use and how to make the most of these opportunities. This is a person you can turn to for help when you need direction, advice in planning your courses, evaluation of your study and time management skills, or help in approaching a college instructor.

WIUYour advisor is the logical person with whom to discuss your thoughts about possible majors, academic and career goals, or any uncertainty that you might have about where you want to go and what you want to do. Advisors are here to provide you with the information you need to make intelligent academic decisions. Too often students wait until deadlines have passed or problems have escalated before seeking help. By planning ahead, you can avoid these problems.
