At Western, we believe that advising is teaching. Our academic advisors strive to empower you to have the necessary information to achieve your academic and career goals. Advisors can help to clarify institutional policies and procedures, refer you to resources, and keep and eye on your progress.
All degree seeking students are assigned an advisor. First time students will be advised during and Individual Advising Appointment in Mustang Success and then assigned to a faculty advisor in their program area for the rest of their time at Western. Using your advisor is a valuable service provided, but it is still your responsibility to make decisions and be responsible for your academic career.
