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.
Academic Advising Offices
The Columbian College has academic advisors as well as pre-professional advising (pre-law or pre-health). As a CCAS student, you are assigned to an advising POD based on your last name; you are able to meet with any advisor in your POD.
