Utilizing Your Professional Advisor

The SEAS Professional Advisor team is available via email, phone, and individual appointments. Your Professional Advisor may also host group advising sessions throughout the semester. All advising appointments, sessions, or workshops will be conducted virtual through Webex or Google Meet.

 

Email: Your Professional Advisor is available to answer emails Monday - Friday from 9:00 am to 5:30 pm ET. The best place to email is [email protected] although you are welcome to contact your Professional Advisor via their individual work email as well.

Note: when emailing any advisor it is important to include your GWID#. For security purposes, it is also important to send your message from your GW email account.

 

General Advising Appointments: All advisors will have 20-minute appointments Monday-Friday from 10:00 am-11:00 am and 3:00 pm-4:00 pm ET.

Special Category Advising Appointments: Special category advising appointments are designed for longer individual advising sessions, which may include academic success meetings, goal setting/academic planning, graduation clearances, or conversations to solve more complex issues. These sessions are scheduled for 20- 30 minutes and will be available through the appointment system. If you have a quick question or simple inquiry, we encourage you to utilize email or general advising appointments. If you need to schedule a special appointment with your advisor outside of those available, please email [email protected] or email your advisor directly through his/her individual work email.
