Academic Advising

Welcome to Academic Advising!

Navigating the academic requirements and policies can be an overwhelming process. Academic Advisors are available to help answer questions, explain procedures, and offer suggestions. Please call the Academic Advising front desk at 253-535-7459 (or stop by Ramstad 112) to schedule an appointment to meet with an advisor.

Our Mission:

Academic Advisors at PLU are committed to assisting students as they discover and define their educational, personal, and emergent life goals.

The advising relationship is a collaborative partnership through which students may gain an understanding of academic disciplines and university resources, and be supported and challenged to become contributing members of the community. Academic Advisors work to support and strengthen students’ development as they progress through their academic journey.

J-Term and Spring 2019 Registration

Registration for continuing students (those students currently enrolled at PLU in Fall 2018) will take place starting Monday, November 5, 2018.  Students must meet with their Student Success Advisor or faculty advisor to receive their registration access code prior to registration.

All new students will meet with a Registration Counselor to register for Spring 2019 courses.  These meetings provide an opportunity for students to discuss course selection, interest areas, and academic preparation.

Registration for New Transfer students [those students currently enrolled at another college and are not Running Start students] will occur in January 2019.  Request your registration appointment.

Registration for New First Year students [those students who graduated from high school in June 2018] begins November 26, 2018.  Please, call 253-535-7459 to schedule an appointment.
