Getting Advising for L&S Undergraduate Students

All students in L&S are assigned to an advising service (i.e., Academic Advising Services [AAS], Center for Academic Excellence [CAE],  Cross-College Advising Services [CCAS], L&S Honors) in their semester at UW-Madison. A student's advisor assignment is based on what is known about an individual student's academic plans at SOAR.  Some students are assigned an advisor based on their participation in a specific program. Most students are assigned to an advising service until they are eligible to declare their major.

The following information is for students who are being advised by L&S Academic Advising Services (for students who have not yet declared their intended major in L&S):

  • To make an appointment with your assigned L&S Academic Advising Services advisor, a student must use WiscCal Scheduling Assistant. If you are a UW-Madison student, the Scheduling Assistant system will automatically connect you with your assigned academic advisor(s) when you log into your Student Center.    UW-Madison students will need to log into their My UW Student Center account in order to schedule an appointment with their academic advisor(s). 
  • If you are a UW-Madison undergraduate student and would like to be assigned an academic advisor in L&S Academic Advising Services, please complete the Advisor Assignment Form.  Students who already have an assigned academic advisor in L&S should not fill out this form.
