Advising by e-mail

If you have a question about College rules and requirements or want some guidance as you make academic choices, you're welcome to send questions by e-mail. E-mail advising is intended to supplement meetings with College Advisers, not to replace them. It is useful especially for straightforward academic advising questions. Just e-mail your question to wcas-adviser@northwestern.edu, and a College Adviser will send you a response.
