Welcome to Academic Advising

Are you a new student for Fall 2023? Start here!

Advising services at CWU are provided based on the student's major program. Each major is part of an academic college and each college has a team of academic advisors that serves students. Students in multiple majors, may have advisors in different colleges. For students who are exploring different majors or are undecided about their major, the university provides Exploratory Advising services.

CWU also offers speciality programs for advising that supplement the general university advising services for specific populations.

Major Advising supports students who are declared, ready to apply to their major, or who know what they want to major in. Students will work with advisors in their academic departments and colleges who are experts in those programs and CWU requirements.

Exploratory Advising serves students who have not yet decided or declared their major at CWU.

Other Advising Programs are specialty programs at CWU. These programs have students work with a specialized advisor from their program in addition to the College Advisor.
