Advising

Whether you are an undecided student who has not yet chosen a major or a student with a very defined life and transfer goal you should definitely visit with an advisor. Advisors can help you select coursework and alert you to information and special opportunities.

Although the ultimate responsibility for making decisions about educational plans and life goals rests with you, the student, advisors are available to offer you assistance with this by helping you to identify and assess alternatives and make choices. Ultimately advisors will assist you in making the choices with which you will be the most satisfied.

Students should schedule a minimum of one appointment with an advisor each semester. Quick questions may be done on a walk-in basis, while in-depth program planning and course selection should be done by appointment. Advisors' hours are available at the Student Affairs front desk.

Students are not assigned to a specific advisor at UWMC. Students choose who they wish to see through walk-in appointment times or through individual appointments.

Students are encouraged to consult an advisor concerning major, career exploration, Associate Degree requirements, concerns, course sequencing and selection.

For more information or to schedule an appointment, please contact Student Affairs at uwmc@uwc.edu or (715) 261-6235.
