WIU-Quad Cities Academic Advising

Meet Your Academic Advisor

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. In contrast, some universities use professors to advise students as an add-on responsibility to their instructing role. WIU-QC students appreciate the professional attention to their unique individual needs. Learn more...
