L&S Advising 101

AAS' online Canvas course for new students

L&S Advising 101 is an online Canvas course intended for all new students who advise with our department. The course covers important academic advising and enrollment information. Some of the questions addressed in Advising 101 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?
  • How will enrollment for next semester work?

L&S Advising 101 covers important and timely information about L&S academics and enrollment. As such, all new AAS students should complete the course before enrolling in courses for their second semester. We also ask students to complete the course before meeting with their academic advisor to discuss next semester courses, if possible.

If you are enrolled, you can access the course in your Canvas dashboard or by clicking here.
