Academic Advising

Why Academic Advising?

Academic advising is a key part of academic success.  Each and every student who is admitted to WSC is assigned an advisor based on their program or admittance type.  WSC requires that all students visit with an advisor each semester before registering for courses.  This is why you see an advisor hold on your account. 

What Does my Advisor Do?
Advisors are responsible with assisting student in choosing their courses each semester, creating and updating their Student Education Plan (degree guide) and providing access to registration guides.  Advisors have access to student's contact information and WSC transcripts.  Advisors DO NOT have access to student financial information.

Who is My Advisor?
To determine who your advisor is please login to your campus connection account.  On the home screen in the right hand side of the screen is a box that says Advisor.  Click here for contact information for your advisor. 

Registering for Courses
Once you are admitted to WSC and each semester after you will need to contact your advisor and set up a time to meet in person or via technology to choose your courses and update your student education plan, or if you are a new student you can choose to attend prescheduled registration days on campus.

Student Education Plans (SEP's)
