Academic Advising and Learning Center

How to Find Your Advisor


Most students are required to meet with their advisor once per term. The Academic Advising and Learning Center recommends that a student consider this requirement a minimum. Meet with your advisor often!


At WOU we follow a dual advising model - General Advising and Faculty Advising. The Academic Advising and Learning Center is only half the component (General), if you have declared you major, you will be assigned a faculty advisor to guide you through your declared major.


To find your advisor in WOU Portal:

  • Go to
  • Log in to your WOU Portal
  • Click on the [+ add channel] button on the bottom right corner
  • Click on the link 'Advisor Information'
  • Your advisor's information will appear on your WOU Portal home every time you log in

You can also search for your advisor’s contact information by:

  • Go to
  • Click on Find People at the top of the page
  • Under the “Search for faculty/staff member” area, type in their first and last name
  • Hit Search
  • Their name, office phone number, email, and office location will be listed. Make contact with them to schedule an appointment.
