Your advisor partners with you to reach your academic goal. They help you plan your unique program, assist you with developing realistic education goals, and are there to explain academic requirements and policies. 

As a student, your role in working with an advisor is to actively participate, use the Undergraduate Calendar to understand your academic requirements, accept ultimate responsibility for your success at UW. And most importantly, your job is to be open and honest so your advisor can effectively support you. 

  • meet with your academic advisor at least once a term
  • if you have questions, concerns, or ideas about your studies, contact your academic advisor
  • if you’re not doing as well as expected, see your academic advisor
