Advising

Advising continues

Updated: March 27, 2020

WMU remains open and the College of Fine Arts Advising is here to support your advising needs.

By now, you have received multiple communications from President Montgomery and our Provost, Dr. Jennifer Bott, regarding the university’s response to the COVID-19 outbreak. College of Fine Arts Advising is open Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

In alignment with courses being offered through distance education for the remainder of the semester, academic advising services will be offered from a distance as our staff works remotely during this time. You will be able to receive advising at a distance via email, phone, and video.

Schedule an appointment


For prospective transfer and high school students, as you do not have an academic advisor of record yet, please email Blake Kuzma with your questions. 

Your success is our top priority and we will do our best to serve your needs. Thank you for your patience and be well!
