New Student Advising
Incoming first-year and transfer students will have the opportunity to meet with several advisors to learn about college processes and expectations, specific department requirements, as well as create their course wish list in preparation for course registration.
Pre-Major Advising Questionnaire
Be sure to fill out your Pre-Major Advising Questionnaire. Why is this so important? We'll use your input to select an academic advisor for you. The questionnaire only takes a few minutes to complete.
Group advising is required for all incoming first-year and transfer students. For Fall 2020, advising sessions were held virtually in small groups in early June. Senior Associate Dean of Students Juli Dunn hosted these sessions and covered general education requirements, required placement tests, Whitman’s expectation around academic integrity, and the process for first-year individual advising and registration.
If you were unable to attend an advising session, please be sure to watch the recorded session below. If you have any follow-up questions, you can email Juli at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Department and Program Info Sessions
Whitman academic department and programs hosted drop-in information sessions. Faculty members shared specifics on programs, courses, research opportunities and careers, and answered questions from incoming students.
