Advising through the College of Arts and Sciences
The College of Arts and Sciences offers a two-tiered advising system for undergraduates. Students receive major/minor specific advising through the faculty or staff expertise within the department and general advising regarding university and general education requirements as well as pre-professional advising through undergraduate advising in the College of Arts and Sciences.
As a student with a major within the College of Arts and Sciences, you will need to meet reqularly with both a departmental and college advisor to ensure you have met all requirements for graduation.
The geosciences department at Western Michigan University is committed to helping students graduate in a timely fashion and wants to help all students keep track of their academics and assist with making their studies as successful as possible. One of the ways to achieve this goal is for students to meet their advisor at least once per year. Students who postpone meeting with their respective advisor until their final year may face delays in their graduation date. The faculty and staff are committed to providing them with quality education, as well as valuable and timely advice throughout their journey.
"A student who chooses to enroll at Western Michigan University assumes the obligation for conduct that is compatible with the University's mission as an educational institution. While students have the privilege to enroll at the institution of their choice, choosing to enroll at Western Michigan University requires sa student to become aware of, and abide by the behavior standards of the University. Ignorance of acceptable boundaries of student behavior as contained in the Student Code is not a basis for excusing inappropriate behavior."
-WMU Student Code, pg. 6
As educators, it is important that we maintain high standards of academic integrity. Cases of suspected misconduct should be referred to the WMU Office of Student Conduct.
