The Advising Center provides academic advising to all degree-seeking undergraduate students who have not declared a major.  This encompasses Wentworth Scholars, General Admit, Transfer, and Re-Admit students.  Students continue to work with an advisor from the Center until they declare a major, at which point the major department will assign a major advisor. 

The Advising Center promotes student success by providing students with the information, guidance, and support they need to develop and achieve their academic goals.  Advisors assist students with interpretation of placement test scores, course selection, registration, academic planning, general education requirements, major selection, graduation requirements, and interpretation of University policies and procedures.
