About Exploratory Advising

About Exploratory Advising


The mission of Exploratory Advising is to disseminate information about classes and majors so that students gain the knowledge and tools needed to make educated decisions regarding their academic careers and to explore possible majors in a meaningful, productive way. Exploratory Advising partners with academic and student affairs departments across campus to educate students in the areas of course selection and registration, general education requirements, good academic standing and major exploration.


Exploratory Advising serves:

  • Students choosing to further explore their options before declaring a major
  • Prospective fine arts majors waiting to audition for their intended program
  • Prospective engineering majors completing prerequisite courses for their intended program
  • Any student or prospective student looking for general information on undergraduate majors


Exploratory Advising is a program housed within WMU's Merze Tate College.  For additional programs and services offered by Merze Tate College, please visit the website.
