My Advising

Find My Advisor

After you log in to your PAWS Account, you will find your advisor's name in the right hand column in the section labeled "Advisor."

For information on making an appointment with your advisor, please visit the Contact Us page. It is highly recommended that you meet with your academic advisor at least once a semester to discuss your overall academic and career goals; review your academic progress; develop long- and short-term plans for completion of your requirements; and select appropriate classes for your next semester.

Whether you are struggling with a course or seeking a research or study abroad experience, your academic advisor is a professional who will connect you to resources that will support and enrich your college experience.

Advisors are available year round so you can schedule an appointment anytime you want to discuss your remaining degree requirements, course selections and any academic concerns. During busy times like registration for fall and spring classes, it is best to call and schedule an appointment early.

Advisement Report

Wondering how close you are to graduation? How about what classes you can take in upcoming semesters to satisfy your degree requirements?

The Academic Advisement System in PAWS is designed to create a report for all undergraduate students indicating the status — satisfied or not satisfied — of primary degree requirements and, for most unsatisfied requirements, list the courses that are available to complete the requirement.

All undergraduate degree-seeking students at UWM have direct access to their Academic Advisement Report on PAWS. After logging into your PAWS account, in the first main section labeled "Academics," choose "Academic Requirements" in the drop down box and hit the gold button.

If you have trouble accessing your Advisement Report, a detailed tutorial is available. This slideshow will not only show you how to run your own report but also how to read the report.
