Most students are required to meet with their advisor once per term. The Student Success and Advising office recommends that students consider this requirement a minimum. Meet with your advisor often!

At WOU, we follow a dual advising model – General Advising and Faculty Advising. The Student Success and Advising office is only half the component (general component) of your degree. 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.

If you can’t find your advisor, or if you need a list of the advisors in your department, come visit the Student Success and Advising office in the Advising Center.
