Promoting Your Academic Success
We are enthusiastic about providing you with superior academic advising!
Each student in Voiland College is assigned an advisor who assists in the selection of classes and registration and provides counsel as needed throughout the year. Your advisor can help you evaluate career options, discuss academic problems, and provide referral to other resources on campus as appropriate. You should meet with your advisor periodically during each semester to discuss progress and concerns.

Review in myWSU any registration hold that may exist in your records. These can be found in the top gray box on the right hand column of your Student Center. Note that the myWSU term ‘Service Indicator’ can be used to refer to a registration hold.
Each student is assigned a major-specific mentor. Please schedule a meeting with your mentor before class registration advising. To this meeting you will need to take the mentor form that is specific to your major. If you are unsure who your faculty mentor is, please check with your assigned academic advisor.
Your academic advisor is assigned during your Alive! Orientation session. Not sure who your advisor is? Email Kasey Schertenleib at email@example.com to find out.
