College of Arts & Sciences Academic Advising

Who We Are:

CAS Academic Advisors are committed to helping students make a successful transition to Trinity Washington University.   By practicing the Appreciative Advising model, Academic Advisors support students as they navigate their scholastic journey and university life. Appreciative Advising is a philosophy and collaborative practice of asking positive, open-ended questions that help students optimize their educational experiences and realize their academic and life destinations.

With your academic advisor’s support, you will make the most of your undergraduate experience by:

  • discovering personal interests and strengths leading to the creation of inspiring and realistic academic and professional goals
  • developing independent skills to make and accept responsibility for academic decisions
  • understanding Trinity’s academic policies and procedures

CAS Academic Advisors are here to support you and help you make good decisions through the first and second year of your degree program. CAS Academic Advisors can help you with:

  • Course planning and selection
  • Long term academic planning
  • Major exploration
  • Career path discovery
  • Managing academic difficulty
  • Referrals to other campus resources

New students can find your assigned advisor by checking the bottom of your schedule in Self Service.

Once you have declared a major, you will work with a Faculty Advisor in your chosen discipline.

The advising office is open 8:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. Monday-Friday. The office provides both appointment and walk-in hours.
