Academic Advising

Our community is strong, supportive and eager to help you find success on your academic and career path. One thing we're particularly proud of at UIW is our one-stop-shop advising. New students speak with an academic advisor early on, during which time they will choose and create a pathway to graduation and receive guidance about their degree journey. It’s an incredible way to kick-start your program.
