Advisement Day is Wednesday, March 29

A chance for your student to review their progress
February 15, 2023

Advisement Day is coming up – a full day when your student can attend their program meeting, which serves as a kickoff for the selection of classes for next semester. Students are encouraged to watch their UW-Stout email for more information on Advisement Day activities.

There are no classes on Advisement Day, Wednesday, March 29, giving everyone time to connect. While Advisement Day provides information that is helpful as your student prepares to select their classes, they do not enroll in classes on this day.

Program Meetings

Program directors share reminders and updates; provide career and helpful advice; invite members of the professional advisory board to speak and answer questions; and help students navigate their program to make the most of it.

Advisor Jamie Arenz meets with a student.

For First-Year Students

The week before Advisement Day, first-year students attend group meetings with their first-year advisors. Students will be provided with more details on these meetings. Encourage them to check their UW-Stout email for more information.

In the Moving On Meetings, students and advisors talk about:

  • Summer course registration and how to enroll in fall courses.
  • Their Academic Advisement Report, program plan sheet and campus resources.
  • How to connect with their faculty advisor in their major.

First-year students in a declared major are encouraged to work with their new faculty advisor as they select their fall classes, to make sure they are on track with their coursework and to discuss their future at UW-Stout.

Undeclared students will need to schedule a meeting with their first-year advisor following Advisement Day to discuss recommended fall classes.

Please encourage your student to take advantage of this time – to connect with their advisor, faculty, and peers; reflect on their progress and next steps; and ask mentors questions. It’s best for your student to come prepared to advisor appointments by understanding their program requirements, know what requirements they’ve already met and have a plan for next semester.

Advisors in our Advisement Center can help your student make sure they are on track with coursework, engage more in student activities and find support services.
