Advising Services

Advising Services provides information to students about:

  • Changing a major or program.
  • Understanding degree audits and degree requirements.
  • Providing explanations of academic policies and procedures.
  • Reviewing academic progress.
  • Developing academic success plans.
  • Assessment of student needs and referrals to other campus services.

Advisors are trained in student development theory; they can help identify some of the roadblocks students face and suggest avenues for overcoming and avoiding them. Furthermore, Advisors are specialists in the “first-year experience” and the process of transferring universities. Advising Services is an excellent resource for transfer students who are still settling into a new environment at UWindsor.

Because Advisors are up to date on all institutional policies and procedures, they are a great resource for faculty – not just students. Similarly, Advisors are thoroughly knowledgeable about student services on campus. The Advising Services team is a good reference point when you’re not sure whom to contact.

Advising Services is located in Dillon Hall, Room 111.

For further information, contact advising@uwindsor.ca, Extension 3950 or see the Advising Services website.
