Who is My Advisor

Student Success Navigators and Advisors

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.

Meeting With an Advisor

Before scheduling a meeting with an advisor, please ensure you have completed all of the college admission and placement requirements outlined on the Advising webpage

After you have verified that you meet the requirements to meet with an advisor, you can follow the directions listed below to make an appointment with your advisor. 

  • If your advisor has a button for you to schedule an appointment on your own, please note that you will be unable to make an appointment with your listed advisor if your program of study is incorrect or unlisted since advisors are assigned by program of study. You can update your program of study.
  • If you have trouble making an appointment using the button linked for your advisor, you can email advising@lwtech.edu from your student email address. Include your name, program of study, placement information, phone number, and availability.
  • If there are no appointments available or you have an urgent need, the fastest way to meet with an advisor is to utilize Drop-in Advising, which is a first-come, first-served time to meet with an advisor without an appointment. More information available on the Advising webpage.
