Room 209, Collins Classroom Center (CCC)
The Academic and Career Advising Center provides academic and career guidance and resources to all UWSP students and alumni. Our Academic and Career Advising Advisers work with incoming students and with students who discover their major isn’t a good fit for their goals to help them discover and define their educational and career goals. In addition, our office has Career Development Coordinators who work with current students and alumni to build a professional resume, meet and network with employers, and to identify potential internship and professional opportunities.
Our staff can help you in:
- developing your educational plans
- making informed decisions in selecting a major
- clarifying the relationship between educational plans and career goals
- understanding the purpose and value of general education as part of the college experience
- locating university requirements, policies, and procedures
- using and understanding the Degree Progress Report to the fullest extent
- taking responsibility in the advising and decision-making processes
ACAC advisers also assist you in examining major alternatives if you:
- are questioning your choice of major and need help in exploring your options after you have transitioned to a faculty adviser.
- have not yet gained entrance into or are dropped from your preferred major (due to, for example: audition, not meeting GPA requirement, portfolio review, etc.)
- are listed as “in transition” in your accesSPoint account
