Undergraduate Advising Resource Center (Advising)
Suite 202, Student Success Center
The Undergraduate Advising Resource Center (UARC) houses Professional Academic Advisors and a team of Peer Advising Liaisons or PALs. Advisors help students explore majors, select appropriate courses, develop degree completion plans, connect to campus resources and co-curricular opportunities and adopt the habits required for success. PALs are upper class students with extensive training to answer a wide array of advising and registration related questions. Advisors and PALs teach students the skills and knowledge necessary to successfully navigate university resources, policies and requirements independently. Students at UW Oshkosh start with a professional academic advisor in the UARC and eventually transition to a faculty advisor in the department of their major.
