Important Information:

The Academic Advising Center & Career Services Offices strives to best serve all who utilize our services. Due to COVID-19, our office will not be conducting in person appointments anymore as of March 18, 2020. Instead we will be offering virtual appointments via phone call, email, or video chat Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Please note that due to the constantly evolving circumstances, it may take longer than normal to hear back, and we will be updating our website as things progress.

Making Academic Advising Appointments

If you are assigned in our office, you can make your appointment online through Navigate, email your advisor, or email advising@uwlax.edu.

If you are not assigned an Academic Advisor in our office, you can make an appointment by emailing advising@uwlax.edu.

Making Career Advising Appointments

To make an appointment for career advising, you can do so online through Navigate or by emailing career@uwlax.edu.

Our access to our main department line is limited to listening to voicemail messages, and as such, we request that if possible you email either advising@uwlax.edu or career@uwlax.edu in order to receive a more prompt response.
