Undergraduates — 

Who are you becoming, and what will you stand for?

As an important element of your UW education, academic advising provides you with unique opportunities for learning, feedback and reflection, encouraging you to find your voice and engage fully with the University. 

Together, we will explore how your unique goals, values, & interests can shape your Husky Experience.

Working with us

We see all undergraduate students. Use our online scheduler to book a 30-minute appointment or visit our office on the first floor of Mary Gates Hall for drop-in advising between 9am and 6pm, Monday through Thursday. Fridays we are available from 9am to 4:30pm.

What do I talk about with an adviser?

  • How do I plan my degree? How do I choose what to major in? 
  • What extracurricular opportunities are available to me and how do I get involved?
  • How can I get help with my academic record?
  • How can I help myself get comfortable at the UW?
  • These are the courses I'm excited about taking...
  • What else should I study to complement my major?
  • How do I prepare for graduate school? What about professions in health care or the law?
  • How do I apply for departmental honors?
  • What happens if the course I need is closed or full?
  • What is the difference between open, minimum, and competitive majors?
  • Given my interests, which faculty and staff should I be meeting?
  • When and how do I register for future quarters?
