Meeting with a UARC Advisor

Meeting a UARC Advisor

You are expected to meet with an advisor in a scheduled appointment at least once each semester. The UARC also offers drop-in service.


Have a quick question? Visit the UARC during our weekly drop-in hours. Drop-ins are meant for brief conversations (5-10 min). Students are seen on a first-come, first-served basis.

  • Prerequisite errors or advisor signatures
  • Check over or change schedule, graduation check
  • UW online course
  • General transfer questions


Advising appointments are available 9am-4pm M-F (24 hour notice). We recommend you set up an appointment with your advisor two to four weeks before your registration date.

Reasons to to schedule an appointment:

  • Choose/change your major or minor
  • Academic plans: semester/graduation plans
  • Academic issues: appeals, late add/drop, repeat, probation.
  • Apply to a professional college, major or program

Self-scheduling only allows students to schedule an ON CAMPUS appointment with their ASSIGNED ADVISOR. You should contact our office directly by calling 920-424-1268 or visiting SSC 202 instead of using self-scheduling, if one of the following situations applies to you:

  • You have a faculty advisor or an SSS advisor. They may not have availability set up.  Contact them directly (not the UARC).
  • You are changing your major. You should meet with the advisor for the new major.
  • Your advisor is on leave.
  • You are an online student.
  • Whenever you cannot see any available appointment times.
