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 academic and social success through proactive support and guidance during your time at LWTech. 

All new students are assigned an advisor/student success navigator (they are the same thing). Your advisor is based on your program of study.

  • You will meet with your advisor/Student Success Navigators for help in choosing your first quarter's classes.
  • You will work with your advisor to choose pre-requisites until you begin your program.
  • Advisors are available online or in person (after remote operations are over) to support your classes choices.

Other Types of Advising

There are other types of advising at LWTech, which is important to know. Some students might receive advising from:

  • BFET is for students who are receiving federal Basic Food Assistance (food stamps).
  • Opportunity Grant is for students receiving funding for low-income students pursuing high-wage, high-demand occupations.
  • TRIO advising is for students who are new to college, have a documented disability, or are first in their family to go to college.
  • Workfirst is for students accepting TANIF funding from DSHS.
  • Worker Retraining is for students experiencing career transition.
  • Faculty advisors, who advise you when you are taking classes in your program of study.
  • Nursing programs - students pursuing pre-requisites for the Nursing AAS-T program, Pre-Nursing DTA/MRP, or Health Sciences AAS-T have dedicated advising information they can find at the Nursing Advising webpage.
