Academic Advising

First Time in College Students

The First Year Advising Center

Advising all incoming freshmen with less than thirty credit hours. All freshmen have a "hold" for advising. During orientation you will meet one on one with an advisor in our office to design a course of study and choose your classes for the upcoming semester. Sign-up for new student orientation today!

After orientation you will have your advising hold lifted until it is time to meet with your advisor to choose classes for the following semester.

Current Students, New Transfer, & Graduate Students

All UWF students are assigned an academic advisor. Students that have declared a major and have 30 credit hours or more will be assigned an academic advisor by your academic department. For advising questions or to find out who your academic advisor is, please contact the College of your academic department. Your Advisor's information can also be found on your "SASS Degree Audit" within MyUWF.

Visiting and Non-Degree Seeking Students

Visiting or non-degree seeking students are not required to meet with an academic advisor prior to registering for UWF classes. Non-degree seeking students are responsible for understanding and abiding by certain requirement and policies. Non-degree applicants are not required to submit any transcripts for admission purposes. Although, many academic departments may need a student's unofficial transcript to show that a course pre-requisite has been satisfied. Once you have been admitted, submitted the required documents and received your University Student ID number, you can register online. Visit the step-by-step registration guide for detailed information on accessing the student information and the course registration.
