Academic Advising

All degree-seeking Winthrop students will be assigned an Academic Advisor. Your Academic Advisor can assist you with degree planning, discussing course choices, and connecting you with campus resources. Students can locate their Academic Advisor's information either in DegreeWorks or on the "Student Information" page in Wingspan. 

Your Student Services office can also assist with connecting you with your advisor and/or answering advising questions. You can find your Student Services Office's information by searching for your major in the table below.
