Academic Advising
The transition to college marks the beginning of exciting and challenging new experiences. Understandably, you may have many questions. Dedicated to answering your questions are knowledgeable and reliable professionals: Academic Advisors.

During New Student Orientation, you will meet with an Academic Advisor to begin the dialogue about your academic career at UWM. It is important that you establish a strong relationship with your Academic Advisor throughout your time at UWM.

Make the most of your student-advisor partnership:

  • Meet with your advisor AT LEAST once per semester. Your advisor’s calendar fills quickly around registration time (April for fall/summer; November for spring). Scheduling appointments several weeks in advance is recommended.
  • Keep your advising appointments. Your time is precious so come prepared with questions, concerns and issues.
  • Keep a Personal Academic File for your records such as transcripts, curriculum plans, emails, university forms and correspondence.
  • Keep a calendar of important events (exam dates, assignment due dates).
  • Know your degree requirements and be familiar with University rules and regulations found in the UWM Undergraduate Catalog.
