EMS Advising

The College of EMS Advising Office provides supplemental, student-focused advising that centers on building an inclusive community and commitment to lifelong learning, communication, and collaboration.

Four professional advisors are available to assist you with a variety of topics, including registration advice, degree progress checks, academic planning, core GPA calculations, course selection, major selection and exploration, time management and study skills, and locating campus resources. Your advisor can also help you with transitioning to college, how to use Office 365 calendar, how to sync your calendar to a smart phone, and much more.

To schedule an appointment with a professional advisor contact CenterPOINT at 608.342.7342, centerpoint@uwplatt.edu, or stop by 170 Ottensman Hall.

Peer Advising

Peer advising allows experienced upper-class students to assist their peers during the course selection and registration process. Peer Advisors serve as an additional advising resource to supplement and support professional and faculty advising. While all College of EMS students are welcome to attend, freshman and sophomore students will likely benefit the most from peer advising.

Peer advising is a convenient and efficient way to get your registration questions answered and develop your schedule before meeting with your professional or faculty advisor. Peer advising is held in a computer lab and allows you to drop in during scheduled open hours for assistance.

Peer advisors are knowledgeable upper-class EMS students who have training and experience in schedule development, understanding degree requirements, and navigating PASS.
