L&S Academic Advising 101

L&S Academic Advising 101 is  intended for all new students who advise with our department. It covers important information about advising and academic processes and procedures. Some of the questions addressed include:

  • How does academic advising work at UW?
  • What are majors / certificates? And how/when do I declare?
  • How do I access a DARS? And why is it important for course selection and degree progression?
  • How will enrollment for next semester work?
