At Western Michigan University, both academic and major advising are critical to a student's progress toward graduation. Faculty members offer guidance on any questions regarding the specific majors while academic advisors ensure students fulfill all of the program and degree requirements for their chosen area of study.

Faculty office hours

Faculty members hold office hours each week during the semester. Use these hours to meet with your instructors regarding class or major advising. It is imperative that you meet with a faculty advisor to discuss the sequence in which to take required and elective major and minor courses. The faculty advisor may also help you select elective courses that fit best with your career planning.


Academic advising

Visit an academic advisor each semester to ensure you are fulfilling requirements and making progress toward graduation. If you have any questions about your program, schedule an appointment by contacting the Office of Advising and Admissions at (269) 387-5075 or
