Academic Advising

Academic Support Programs provides academic and personal assistance to first year and transfer students in a variety of majors.We also serve as a referral and resource site for those students who may be unsure of their declared major and is open to all students enrolled at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville.

All students will meet with and advisor, and assignments are typically posted later in the summer, or after the start of the semester. Your assigned advisor will show on your Student Center in PASS. Academic advising is a collaborative process between advisors and students.

Mission Statement

The mission of the UW-Platteville academic advising program is to provide a supportive atmosphere which promotes the educational and professional development of the student.


Effective advising encourages students to become self-sufficient in making decisions and solving problems as they complete their college education.
Effective advising results in students who can:

  • Use tools and resources that support efficient academic planning, scheduling and registration;
  • Enroll in courses in an appropriate sequence to complete their academic program in a timely manner;
  • Satisfy the graduation requirements for Core Education and for their academic program(s);
  • Familiarize themselves with Student Rights and Responsibilities;
  • Make appropriate educational and career decisions;
  • Solve problems that may occur as they move through their academic program; and,
  • Advocate on their own behalf.
