University of Wisconsin-Sheboygan

Academic Advising

Academic Advising at University of Wisconsin-Sheboygan is essential to developing your educational plan and completing your degree. The ultimate responsibility for making decisions about your course selections and career path rests directly on you, but your advisors can help.

The goals of Advising are to:

  • Make academic policies clear and meaningful for students
  • Help students navigate through UW Sheboygan's human resources to locate and secure advice from the most knowledgeable person in a particular field or college
  • Help students identify sources that will aid them in clarifying their academic direction and strengthening their academic skills.
  • Associate of Art/Science Degree Worksheet

Whether it's choosing classes, planning for a transfer or meeting your degree requirements - an advisor will help guide and assist you in planning your course of study.

All students are assigned to an academic staff or faculty member who acts as an advisor for both educational and career guidance.


If you have any questions about Advising or want to make an appointment, please do not hesitate to contact the Students Affairs Office at (920) 459-6633, or email us using a form by clicking here. While we are happy to help students who walk in to our office, our advisors' schedules do fill up quickly and making an appointment is the best way to ensure an advisor can meet with you.




The University of Wisconsin-Sheboygan is currently in the process of implementing an Early Alert program to alert students at risk of academic failure to potential problems. The program will ask instructors to identify by the fourth week of the semester students experiencing academic difficulties, and these students are then sent a letter of notification and recommendations for action. Students are expected to seek academic support and to meet with the Student Affairs Office for assistance.

In conjunction with the University’s mission, every student’s success is a priority.
