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.
- Help students understand and make progress toward degree requirements for the Associate of Arts and Science Degree and/or a bachelors degree
- 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.

Early Alert Program
The University of Wisconsin-Sheboygan utilizes a proactive system by which instructors can provide detailed information regarding students they are concerned about or that are not meeting course expectations to the students' academic advisors. Advisors in the Solution Center will then reach out to students to recommend ways to improve and discuss relevant options and policies.
Instructors are encouraged to submit an Early Alert Refferal form to the Solution Center or Tom Bruflat for each student that is not doing well during the first month of the semester or at any time during the term. Instructors may also email Solution Center with student referrals.
