At large universities, advising may be conducted in a central advising office and you may end up attending large group advising sessions. At MUW, business majors and minors are advised by full-time faculty members who will provide you with meaningful, personalized one-on-one academic counseling, scheduling of classes, mentoring, and career planning.
The W has articulations agreements and transfer partnerships with many community colleges. These academic relationships help ensure that your transfer goes seamlessly.
