Web chat: Academic Advising

Tuesday, March 12, 2013, noon–1 p.m. CDT

Do you have questions about your academic plan? UW–Madison advisors want to help.

Academic advisors are a key part of the undergraduate experience. Advisors are here to help you explore, define and accomplish your academic and career goals. All students should take advantage of the opportunity to work with an academic advisor.

As part of a comprehensive plan to improve student academic advising services, the university recently created the new position of director of undergraduate advising. The area will be a priority for years to come.

The UW–Madison Parent Program is hosting a live informational Web chat to answer a wide range of questions from students and parents.

The event will be held from noon–1 p.m. (CDT) on Tuesday, March 12.

Topics may include exploring, selecting or changing a major, academic planning, career planning, and planned enhancements to the campus advising program.

Participants are encouraged to submit their own questions or simply sit back and observe the chat. For those who can't participate in the live chat, a complete HTML transcript will be posted immediately following the event.

Keep in mind that the chat is designed to provide information and resources — it doesn’t replace a regular appointment with an assigned academic advisor.

Panelists include:

Co-sponsored by the Parent Program, University Communications and Marketing, and the Office of Undergraduate Advising.
