Academic Advising

One of the ways WIU-QC implements its core values is by offering professional advisors. The Advisors are trained and experienced in advising and committed to it full time. WIU-QC students appreciate the professional attention to their unique individual needs.


What does the Academic Advising Center do?

All students at WIU-QC are assigned an academic advisor. You both share an important responsibility. While ultimately you are responsible for your graduation requirements, advisors are available to clarify University policies and procedures and to assist in developing your degree plan.
