Fall Advising & Registration

Fall Advising & Registration 2022

Check back in spring 2022 for more information about the Fall Advising & Registration (A&R) 2022 program. Students will complete an online reservation to attend an advising and registration session. This session will include advising in a small group and individually with faculty, staff and student advisors. 

In addition to developing core academic planning skills, students will also gain a better understanding of Western's academic expectations and resources, meet with helpful faculty, staff and student advisors, and begin connecting with fellow new and current WWU students.
