Academic Advising


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.

Prospective or current students will have the opportunity to speak with an Advisor without an appointment during drop-in hours. Drop-in hours are designed for questions that can be addressed in 15 minutes or less. If the question is complex, an appointment will be scheduled for another day.
