Academic Advising

Each Wesleyan student is connected with a dedicated academic advisor who will offer personalized guidance and support. Your advisor will follow your progress closely and help answer any questions you have about campus resources, study techniques, managing your schedule, asking professors for help, registering for courses, and more. As you transition to college and acclimate to campus life, plan to check in regularly with your academic advisor. 

Day Program students may make an advising appointment by visiting India Jones’ bookable calendar or Kathleen Richardson’s bookable calendar. Online Program students may make an advising appointment by visiting N’seeka MacPherson’s bookable calendar.
