Welcome to Western from New Student Services/Family Outreach!
We strive to support the transition process of new students and their family members to the WWU community.
For students, we offer academic advising and orientation programs and resources based on your student type (First-Year, Transfer, Post-bacc) and which quarter you are entering Western. For parents and family members, the NSSFO office also supports year-round communications such as monthly e-newsletters and calendars, family orientation programs, and an annual family weekend event in the fall for students and families.
Summer Advising & Registration
Summer Advising & Registration (A&R) is for new Transfer students entering Western during Summer Quarter and supports your transition to campus with an academic advising and course registration program. New Post-Baccalaureate students are encouraged to schedule an individual advising appointment with an academic advisor prior to registration.
New Student and Family Orientation
Western's New Student and Family Orientation website features virtual events, informational videos, and resources to help you learn more about academic departments and campus services and explore areas of academic and personal interest to you.
Next Steps for New Students
We've put together a checklist to help you get ready for your first quarter at Western. This list highlights required actions and resources essential to your orientation, advising and registration experience, including submitting proof of your measles immunization, completing the Math Placement Assessment, submission of final transcripts, and more.
