Academic Advisement

Mission:
The mission of Academic Advisement in the Center for Academic and Career Engagement is to advocate for student success, retention and timely graduation through purposeful academic relationships and community building. At the heart of this is our collaborative work with you, the student, as you attempt to find your own answers to the question “What’s Your Wagner Plan,” a 4-step process of self-inquiry, major and career exploration, reflection and decision making, and strategic action.

Services:
Faculty are the primary advisors for students; the CACE advisors serve as secondary advising support should a faculty member be on sabbatical leave, or is inaccessible over the summer months. CACE advisors may also be assigned as a new transfer student’s primary advisor before that student declares a major.

Transfer Students:

We welcome questions about all aspects of transfer, from what to expect in your transition to Wagner to creating your first semester schedule. And you can easily see how your credits will transfer to Wagner with our Online Transfer Evaluation System.

“The CACE advisors work closely with students and take the time to really know and understand them, while also being helpful in answering questions and problem-solving any academic obstacles.” – Matt, ’23, Undeclared
