Academic Advising

Encourage your student to develop a relationship with his or her academic advisors. Advisors may be faculty, staff, administrators, graduate students or peer educators. Academic advising at Western Michigan University will take many forms. Depending on the program of study, some students may have more than one academic advisor. For instance, a student may have a curriculum advisor, major advisor and minor advisor. Each college advising office will assist students in making a connection with the appropriate advisor or advising office.

Advisors provide students with information and guidance as it relates to program and curriculum requirements, academic policies and procedures, and various academic issues and concerns. Advisors will evaluate transfer courses for applicability to programs of study, assist with course selection, and when appropriate, refer students to support systems, informational resources and individuals. Ultimately, students are responsible for their own education. Students should make sure to register for their courses on time, familiarize themselves with University policies and procedures, and take an active role in their education by developing a plan of study.
