Academic Advising

Every CUW student is assigned an academic advisor. For all the details and a list of FAQs, check out the Academic Advising webpage.

Here are a few highlights to get you started:

How and When Advisors Are Assigned

  • Students are assigned a faculty or professional advisor in their area of study.
  • If you're an EXPLORE student (undecided), you will be enrolled in LA 101 and be assigned an advisor that works specifically with students who do not have a declared major.
  • Academic Advisors are assigned to new students about two weeks before the semester begins.
