Western Michigan University's integrated supply management academic advisor, Alyshia Garrett, helps all ISM students with curriculum planning from orientation to graduation. Walk-in advising is available Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8 to 11:30 a.m. and Wednesdays from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Appointments are available Mondays and Fridays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1 to 5 p.m. Please schedule an appointment online at ismadvising.org.
Students should plan their programs of study and confirm that they are meeting the requirements to graduate on time. It is recommended that students use the Plans tab in Degree Works to build their curriculum plan and track their progress. Degree Works can be accessed through GoWMU in the My Self Service channel. Note: Degree Works opens in a separate window, so you will need to allow pop-ups if you have a pop-up blocker. Questions about Degree Works can be answered during an appointment with the ISM academic advisor.
To stay on track to graduation, it is critical that all ISM majors meet with the ISM academic advisor every semester to maintain current plans and ensure proper course sequencing.
The ISM academic advisor is your first stop for any questions relating to the program or general advising. If your advising question requires input from the faculty, the ISM academic advisor will direct you to the appropriate faculty member.
Students should meet with the ISM academic advisor when they reach 88 credit hours to begin the graduation audit process. Graduation audits must be completed no later than the semester prior to graduation.
