Columbian Undergraduate Academic Advising
All CCAS students have an assigned professional academic advisor in the Office of Undergraduate Studies. A student is assigned to his or her advisor according to the student’s last name.
Professional academic advisors are knowledgeable about the policies and procedures of the college, including its general education curriculum and requirements for majors and minors. Their broad expertise allows them to give students a macro view of what students need to navigate GW successfully and prepare for life after graduation. Over the course of a student’s time at GW, the advisor will review the student’s progress toward the degree, prepare materials to help the student evaluate his or her progress, and identify avenues for fulfilling requirements.
In addition, the advisors are also available to speak with students experiencing academic problems or difficulties adjusting to life as a college student, and to direct them to the available resources.
