Advising

Undergraduate Advising

Request a permit into a full or online class – Fall 2019

We are not accepting permit requests at this time. The form for the spring semester will be available during registration.

A professionally staffed, in-house advising office provides students support and guidance—whether that means help with course selections for any of the 11 majors offered, referral to other campus services, or to study abroad.

Students are required to meet with their adviser at least one time each semester. Students receive an email via Navigate Campus which includes a link to schedule their appointment. This will enable students to register for the next semester’s classes on their priority date.

Graduate Program Advising

The professional graduate programs advising staff assists students in any of the four full-time or four online graduate degree programs. Graduate advisers can help you decide which program is best for you (full-time, dual-degree or online) and make sure you meet the prerequisite requirements. They also work with students interested in graduate assistantships, career placement or study abroad.

Advisers are the only ones who can override course restrictions, prerequisites and course substitutions.  Students should send an email to begradprograms@mail.wvu.edu and include name, student ID number, course name, CRN and error message.
