Each student is assigned an academic advisor. During the student’s first year, they will be assigned to the College of Health Sciences Student Success Coordinator. For second through fourth years, student’s will be assigned an academic advisor in the nutrition department. Advisors play an integral role in assisting students through their college years; they aid students in: 

  • Planning a schedule of required courses 
  • Providing information about scholarships, professional organizations, and job openings 
  • Making plans for future career endeavors 
  • Identifying and marketing their strengths 
  • Communicating pre-professional and professional expectations 
  • Nurturing professional growth and development  

Students should plan to meet with their advisor at least once each semester before the self-scheduling period begins. Undergraduate degree students are able to self-schedule on the web using the My WCU Web Portal. Students MUST see their advisor to gain access to schedule on the web portal.
