The primary mission of Wilson Advising Center is to work collaboratively with the campus community to provide a quality academic advising experience for both students and faculty of Arkansas State University. While we serve as the primary advisors for more than 1,000 students who are still deciding on a major, we also offer a variety of other services including: instructional opportunities and intrusive advising for students in academic distress, guidance for students transferring to our University and advisor training for faculty. The center is conveniently located between the parking garage and the Reng Student Services wing of the Student Union on Caraway Road.


Advisors in the Wilson Advising Center are eager to assist you! If you are still deciding on a major or just have a general advising question to ask stop by for a visit. Walk-in service is welcome, appointments are not necessary.


Through the First Year Experience Course- Making Connections and individual service, the Wilson Advising Center helps incoming first year freshman and transfer students connect to campus resources and understand university policies as they make the transition to Arkansas State University.


Through the Restart@stAte program the Wilson Advising Center provides instruction and guidance to students who face challenges maintaining good academic standing at A-State.
