Academic & Career Advising

Every CUW student is assigned an academic advisor. For more information about advising, check out the Center for Academic and Career Advising webpage

Every undergraduate, Concordia student is assigned a professional Academic and Career advisor who serves as a guide regarding program/major curriculum, course registration, and career development. The Center of Academic and Career Advising is home to these professional advisors, as well as to a variety of resources to support students' exploration of "vocation" - who you were made to be and how to share that in world

A student's Academic & Career Advisor will serve as the primary contact as it relates to advising and registration for the first two years. When students become upper-classmen, they are also assigned a faculty advisor within their area of study. A student's advisor will be in contact with them during the onboarding process to introduce themselves and assist with initial course registration - however, to verify an advisor, please contact the Center for Academic Advising and Career Engagement at:
