Summer Advising & Orientation Banner


Summer Advising & Orientation (Summer A&O) is for new Transfers entering Western during Summer Quarter, and supports your transition to campus with an academic advising and campus orientation program.

For new Postbaccalaureate students, rather than a formal advising session, Postbacc students are invited and encouraged to schedule an individual advising appointment prior to Summer quarter registration.

Summer Advising & Orientation 2020:

  • Friday, May 1 (Transfer students)
  • Friday, May 8 (Transfer students)

Summer Advising & Orientation 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. We encourage you to explore this website to help you prepare and to make your reservation.

New students are assigned a time and date for class registration based on the number of credits, and the Outreach and Continuing Education office’s website will list more information on the Registration Schedule, course listing, costs, etc. (During the regular academic year, students will refer to the Registrar’s Office website for the Registration Schedule.) Summer Quarter 2020 classes begin on Tuesday, June 23.

If you have any questions about the Summer A&O program or getting started at Western, contact New Student Services/Family Outreach by email or phone at (360)650-3846.
