2014 Transfer A&O: Best Practices

Tuesday, July 1, 2:00-3:30 p.m., MGH 258
Ali Albrecht, First Year Programs; Megan McConnell, UAA Advising; Tamara Sollinger, Political Science Advising

Come find out about the changes in this year's Transfer Advising & Orientation; ask questions about the online scheduling tool, the Transfer Admin Console; discuss best practices for the advising appointment itself; and learn what else is covered in the rest of the day so you know what students have heard before they arrive in your office. We'll also hear from one of the academic departments that created a "department-specific" Advising & Orientation agenda working closely with First Year Programs. No RSVP required.

Undergraduate Advising Basics

September 15, 8:30 a.m.-4:00 p.m in MGH 171E

This free 6-hour workshop is intended to provide new undergraduate advisers (those on the job a year or less) with the essentials in getting started advising on the UW campus--an overview of advising and critical student support offices on campus; an introduction to FERPA, EARS, SDB, and the Adviser Information File; and the ins and outs of general education requirements, majors, minors, and graduation procedures.
