How to schedule an academic advising appointment

by Katie Coon Thursday, September 15, 2011

To schedule an appointment with an academic advisor follow these instructions:

If the academic advisor you would like to make an appointment with is currently assigned to you:

Step 1: Use your NetID and password to log onto MyUW

Step 2: Place your cursor over the “Services” tab.  A menu will appear below the tab – click on the “WiscCal – Make an Appointment” link within that menu.  Select your academic advisor.

Step 3: The advisor’s schedule should appear on the screen. Green blocks indicate time that the advisor is available. Red blocks indicate that the advisor is NOT available. Select a time that the advisor is available and works best for you.

Step 4: Indicate your reason for scheduling and appointment. Click Create. You have successfully scheduled an appointment; your advisor will now be notified that an appointment has been scheduled.

If you would like to schedule an appointment with an academic advisor who is currently not assigned to you, please call 608.262.0471 or come to 3150 Grainger Hall.

Remember, if you're a first-year student, you must attend a First-Year Advising Session.  To register, click here.  Attendance at a First-Year Advising Session is required before scheduling an individual appointment.
