Welcome to Academic Advising

At Central Washington University, academic advising will empower students with the relevant knowledge and tools to achieve academic success. Advisors are committed to standards of excellence and providing accurate, timely advice that enables students to pursue academic and career goals. (Vision Statement, 2020)

Academic advising at CWU is dedicated to creating supportive environments that assist students with describing, planning, and attaining their unique educational, professional, and personal goals. Advising provides students with appropriate resources to make informed academic decisions. (Mission Statement, 2020)

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.
