Student Responsibilities for Academic Advising

Students can assist in the advising relationship in the following ways:

  • Talk to your advisor as soon as possible when academic or personal challenges arise that may affect your academic plans.
  • Schedule appointments with your advisor with plenty of advance notice.
  • Be prepared for your appointments by bringing appropriate materials, identifying course choices from requirements of the preferred program or major, and questions prepared to clarify expectations.
  • Let your advisor know if you have any special needs or require any learning accommodations.
  • Check your WSU student email on a regular basis. All departments at WSU - including your advisor - will use this email address to disseminate all important messages for any business relating to the university.
  • Accept responsibility for your decisions and actions that affect your education progress and goals.
