Deciding to go to college or return to school after a number of years is an important step. Academic advising is at the heart of the admissions process for UW-Marinette. Making an appointment with an advisor is the first step you need to take to become a college student. With one-on-one guidance, you will learn about majors, academic requirements, the process of transferring and veterans' benefits. You will also get help in assessing career goals, planning a return to school, adjusting to academic life, or other areas of concern relevant to a successful college career.
The Office of Student Affairs is open Monday - Friday from from 8:00 am – 4:30 pm. Evening advising is also available by appointment.
For an advising appointment, go to the Office of Student Affairs (M-126) in the Main Building or call 715-735-4300 ext 4301 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
