UAASC

University Advising and Academic Services Center.

Our Mission

We strive to help our students discover, set, and achieve their academic goals.

The populations we serve include:

  • undeclared students exploring the vast options of majors with an academic advisor trained in a decision-making model 
  • entering freshmen (from all majors) through the alternative admission program who do not meet regular admission standards
  • pre-nursing conditional students working toward acceptance into the nursing program
  • students changing majors in the Transitional Advising Program (TAP)
  • students working on GPA recovery with an academic success coach
  • students seeking tutoring services and academic success workshops through Rocky's Resources
Who Are We?

UAASC advisors are full-time academic support professionals committed to student success. They view themselves as mentors and resource people who recognize that students may experience difficulties adjusting to university life. In addition to assisting with course selection, advisors help students explore major and career options, and facilitate their transition to college.

Details About Math Placement

The Mathematics Department will do an initial placement into math courses using a student's math ACT or SAT score and the math courses completed in high school as guidelines. The department may recommend that a student take the math placement test (ALEKS) to improve the placement level. An explanation of math competency and placement at Western Illinois University can be found here. Students can also look into General Education Math courses on STARS.
