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 Ramstad Commons 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.

Fall 2018 Registration

Registration for continuing students (those students currently enrolled at PLU in Spring 2018) will take place in April.  Students must meet with their academic advisor to receive their registration access code prior to registration.

All new students will meet with a Registration Counselor to register for Fall 2018 classes. 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 take place in late May.  These students may request a registration appointment here.

Registration for New First-Year students (those students who have not enrolled in another college or have only complete college credits through the Running Start program) will take place in mid June.  These students may request a registration appointment here.
