Academic Advisors

Every student at GW is assigned an academic advisor when they arrive on campus. Your academic advisor can help you with selecting classes, getting help when you’re struggling in a class, planning for your future career (in and out of the classroom), or exploring a discipline you haven’t yet studied.

Your academic advisors are here to help you: meet with them often and don’t wait until you are struggling to get to know them.
