Office of Academic Advising
The Office of Academic Advising is a department within Wheelock's Division of Enrollment Management and Student Success. Our developmental philosophy and holistic approach empower students to make decisions about their personal and professional goals while pursuing their undergraduate degree.
Wheelock's 2+2 advising model is uniquely designed to help students get the most from their undergraduate experience. For their first two years at Wheelock, students work with a professional academic advisor to successfully transition to college life, design an academic program plan, develop and monitor their academic success plan, and connect with the multitude of opportunities available at Wheelock, the other Colleges of the Fenway, and in local communities. Juniors and seniors have a faculty advisor in their programs of study who serve as a mentors, review their advisees' academic plans and makes adjustments as necessary, continue to develop and monitor their advisees' academic success plans, and create opportunities for students as they grow professionally.
Our advising staff works in partnership with every student to help him or her develop realistic educational, professional, and personal goals. The staff's primary goal is to give students the tools they need to become self-advocates who can make the most of their experience at Wheelock and beyond.
