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.

Advising by appointment, walk-in advising, and specialized advising are services available in G95 Huntsman Hall to current Wharton undergraduate students.

Students in coordinated dual-degree programs should consult with their program advisors for information on their curricular requirements.

Quick Question Advising

Walk-in advising is limited to brief, 10-15 minute sessions with an advisor “on call” for quick questions about issues with impending deadlines. A different advisor will be on call each day to see students on a first-come, first-served basis. Check the Division home page for this week’s walk-in hours >>

Advising by Appointment

Students are encouraged to make a 30-minute appointment with an advisor to discuss academic goals and questions or get specialized advising on specific topics. Make an appointment with an advisor >>
