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.

Advising by Appointment

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