Wheelock Advising Experience

_____________________________________________________

Students must declare their major by the second semester of sophomore year. During Spring Break of the sophomore year, students will be assigned to faculty advisors in their academic programs.

A Closer Look at the 2+2 Advising Model

First year, sophomore, and transfer students work with a professional advisor on:

  • Successfully transitioning to college life.
  • Designing an academic program plan.
  • Developing and monitoring their academic success plan.
  • Connecting to the multitude of opportunities available at Wheelock, COF, and in local communities.

Juniors and seniors have a faculty advisor in their program of study who:

  • Uses a developmental philosophy to mentor students.
  • Reviews advisees' academic plans and make adjustments as necessary.
  • Continues to develop and monitor their advisees' academic success plans.
  • Creates opportunities for students as they grow professionally.
