New Student Advising

Student studying in Penrose Library

Incoming first-year and transfer students will have the opportunity to meet with several advisors to learn about college processes and expectations and 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

Group advising is required for all incoming first-year and transfer students. For Fall 2023, advising sessions were held virtually in small groups in late June. Senior Associate Dean of Students Juli Dunn hosted these sessions, covering general education requirements, placement tests, Whitman’s expectations around academic integrity, and the process for first-year individual advising and registration. If you have any questions, you can email Dean Dunn at dunnjl@whitman.edu.
