Spring Advising & Orientation

Spring Advising & Orientation (Spring A&O) is for new First-Year (Freshmen & Running Start) and Transfer students entering Western during Spring Quarter, and supports your transition to campus with an academic advising and campus orientation program.

Spring A&O is designed to help you begin your Western experience with confidence and success. Your participation will help you feel more comfortable and prepared to begin your career at Western.

Rather than a formal advising session, new Post-Baccalaureate students for Spring Quarter are invited and encouraged to schedule an individual advising appointment prior to Spring quarter registration.

Reservations are now closed for Spring A&O 2020.
