Welcome to Advising in the College of Education and Professional Studies!

We are excited to help you navigate the College of Education and Professional Studies at UW-Whitewater. Our offices are located on the main floor of Winther Hall.  Visit the Information Desk window Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 4:30pm (appointments are encouraged).

We primarily assist prospective and current UW-W students, whether first-year, continuing, transfer, re-entry, or post-baccalaureate, with program information and requirements. We also have materials available for students on requirements for Admission to Professional Education, Praxis CORE and the Future Teacher Program.

Please note that advising assistance in the College does not replace your assigned advisor; rather, we serve as an additional resource to assist you with academic planning, understanding requirements for Admission to Professional Education (teacher licensure programs only), and interpreting institutional policies. Your academic or faculty advisor(s) will assist you in the development of an educational plan. You, the student, have the ultimate responsibility to know the requirements, to monitor your course of study, to fulfill all licensure requirements (if pursuing a license), to fulfill all degree requirements (if pursuing a degree), and to take the initiative to seek advising. Assistance is available through partnerships with staff, academic and faculty advisors.
