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, most classes will be offered online through the end of Fall quarter. Classes that need access to tools and equipment (Health Sciences, Manufacturing, Transportation, a few science labs) will be offered on campus during summer and fall. The physical campus is closed during this time.
Registration for Fall 2020 quarters is open.
LWTech uses the terms Student Success Navigator and Advisor interchangeably. New students see Student Success Navigators/Advisors for help in choosing their first quarter classes. This can be facilitated through drop-in advising or through an appointment.
Once you have begun your program, see your Faculty advisor for help choosing technical classes for future quarters. Your Faculty advisor is most often an instructor in your program. To find your Faculty Advisor contact information, visit your program of study webpage.
