Advising & Orientation Update

In line with local and state guidance, we have made the decision to facilitate most A&O sessions remotely this summer. We recognize that this structure is not ideal. However, we believe it will allow you to prepare for your transition to UW.

While the format may be different from other years, the goals of Advising & Orientation remain the same. After attending A&O, you will have registered for classes, discovered campus resources, and started to make connections with the UW community.

  • The A&O reservation system is now open. Please log in to reserve a space for a remote A&O.
  • After reserving your remote A&O, you will receive access to complete the Online Pre-A&O Modules on your own time. Make sure you complete these modules before attending your remote A&O session.
  • During your remote A&O, current students (also known as Orientation Leaders), will lead you through discussions and activities with academic advisers and campus experts, while being on hand to give advice and answer your questions.
