Academic advising is a critical component to your college experience. Advising is an interactive process between you and your Student Success Navigator/Advisor to ensure student success through proactive support and guidance during your time at LWTech.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, classes and operations in Fall and Winter quarters will continue remotely. Programs that are holding on-campus classes will be on campus for Winter quarter
in a hybrid format. Courses that can be online are being asked to stay online. Student
and support services will remain in remote operations. Classes that need access to tools and equipment (Health Sciences, Manufacturing, Transportation, a few science labs) will be offered
on campus. The physical campus is closed during this time.
The LWTech Advising Office is only available remotely. No in-person appointments or services are available at this time.
Winter quarter starts on January 4, 2021 and ends on March 17, 2021. Registration for Winter quarter will open for:
New students, please carefully review this webpage for steps to take to prepare for registration.
