New student will be advised by a faculty member familar with the specific expectations of the declared program. Advising is also done by the Advisement Coordinator in Student Academic Services for students who have not declared a specific education major (pre-education majors or those students who have recently transferred to Winthrop University) and in cases that a faculty advisor is un available.

Academic advising at Winthrop is an integral part of the learning process through which students are advised of degree requirements, course sequencing, career opportunities, and campus resources. One of the most valuable resources is the catalog. It is the student's responsibility to review all academic requirements related to the degree program in which they are pursuing.

Prior to registration, students meet their faculty advisor to review current progress, opportunities, and suggested course work for the next term. In addition, some program offer group sessions to review general expectations. Ultimately, each student is responsible for understanding and completing all degree requirements and making career-oriented decisions. Students are encouraged to use a DegreeWorks Planner with their advisor to plan current and future progress.
