Academic Advising Services

The goal of the Wharton Undergraduate Division academic advising team is to help students make informed decisions about their educational plans and professional/life goals that are consistent with their interests, abilities, and values.

The advising services below are available to all current Wharton undergraduate students; however, students in coordinated dual-degree programs should consult with their program advisors for information on their curricular requirements.

Students are encouraged to direct quick questions to our peer advisors or email their assigned advisor.

Advising by Appointment

Students are encouraged to make a remote or in-person appointment with their assigned advisor to discuss academic goals. Students can also make an appointment to discuss topics that require specialized advising (see below).

You can book directly with your assigned advisor or look for the first available advisor. Please also note the following:

  • If you cannot find an in-person appointment please check the remote advising schedule and vice versa.
  • Appointments can be made up to 12 hours in advance of the start time, though advisors will likely be booked more than a day in advance.
  • Please check in at least 5 minutes before your scheduled in-person appointment time at the front desk of SHDH 1400 (enter through the Academic Research Building atrium).
  • If you have any issues with the CampusGroups appointment technology, please contact Student Computing (support@wharton.upenn.edu).
