The primary mission of the Wilson Advising Center is to work collaboratively with the campus community to provide a quality academic advising experience for both the students and faculty of Arkansas State University. While we serve as the primary advisors for students who are still deciding on a major, we also offer a variety of other services including: instructional opportunities to assist students in identifying interests, values, needs and abilities to set attainable academic and life goals, intrusive advising and guidance for students in academic distress and advisor training for faculty.

ADVISE

If you are still deciding on a major or just have a general advising question to ask, the Wilson Advising Center's academic advisors are eager to assist you. The Wilson Advising Center is the advising home for about 1,000 ASU students. Our professional advisors can help you choose a major that is right for you.

CONNECT

Freshman students are enrolled in the First Year Experience Course-Making Connections.  This course is designed to help students make a successful transition into college by connecting students to campus resources, ASU policies, learning techniques, critical thinking skills, and degree information.  Wilson Advising Center Staff serve as instruction for the general sections of Making Connections.

RESTART

Having trouble, we can help.  The center provides academic support through the Restart@state program. This program is designed to provide academic support and guidance to students who face challenges maintaining good academic standing at ASU. 

The center is conveniently located between the parking garage and the Reng Student Services wing of the Student Union on Caraway Road.

Undergraduate FACULTY ADVISOR TRAINING

The Wilson Advising Center will host -Undergraduate Faculty Advisor Training- Thursday, October 9, from 11am-3pm in the Spring River Room of the Student Union.  Light refreshments will be provided.  We offer this opportunity each semester in collaboration with the Office of Admissions Records and Registration to better prepare faculty advisors for the upcoming advising and registration period.  This semester we are extending an option for colleges and departments to become more involved by providing a representative from their unit to offer a break out session just for their faculty advisors in the afternoon.

ASU Financial Literacy

Debt and personal finances are serious issues for students. Students frequently fail to complete their degrees because of debt and financial stress and debt can limit career options for those students who do finish their degrees.
