For students who did not attend Transitions, here are your next steps regarding the academic advising and class registration process. Additional resources and checklists can be found in the “Preparing for WWU” section of the New Student Services/Family Outreach website.

1. Schedule an advising appointment:

Beginning on July 31st, students can call the Academic Advising Center at 360-650-3850 to schedule an appointment with an advisor. Students who are a part of the Student Outreach Services program can contact SOS at 360-650-7443 to schedule an appointment with an advisor. During your appointment you will have the chance to review how your credits transfer to Western, plan for your major, and prepare for registration beginning on August 28th at 8:30am.

2. Complete the Missed Orientation Advising Online Video:

Before arriving for your scheduled advising appointment, you must first review some general advising information and policies online. If prior to your advising appointment you have not completed the Missed Orientation Advising online video, your appointment will be rescheduled. You will need your student ID number (WID) to access the video. Allow yourself approximately 30 minutes to complete watch the video.

3. Explore Additional Online Advising Resources:

You are also encouraged to check out the online resources provided in the Advising & Registration Introduction online advising module you were sent before Transitions via your Western student email. You can also find the online advising modules here:
