The University of WisconsinLa Crosse Academic Advising Center is committed to providing all students developmental academic advising grounded in teaching and based on valuing a liberal arts education. Through this process, students develop the skills and self knowledge to be adaptable and reflective life-long learners. This results in the ability to set personal goals and to make intelligent educational, career, and life choices to achieve those goals.  


Undeclared majors/students with unique needs: Most of the center’s work is focused on students who have not decided on an academic major and populations of transfer students, returning (non-traditional) students, and those students with unique needs. There are resources to assist with academic and career decision-making, including the computer-based Discover program, WCIS (Wisconsin Career Information System) and other Web-based programs that can help match the student’s interest and skills with potential majors and occupations. Staff members meet individually with students who are uncertain about their majors or career choices.   

Declared majors: The Academic Advising Center staff supports the advising that is carried out by faculty and academic staff within the colleges, departments and other academic units. Students who have declared their major/minor should meet every semester with their designated faculty adviser.
