Advising, Careers, & Well-Being
Frequently Asked Questions
An Academic Advisor is a college counselor who helps guide you through the college process. From choosing majors to selecting classes to transferring to a university, your Academic Advisor is there to help inform and assist you as you achieve your academic goals.
Check your DegreeWorks or WebRunner account (under the student tab). You may also call the Advising Center at (541) 917-4780 if you’re unsure who your assigned advisor is.
We recommend that you meet with your Academic Advisor at least once per term. Frequent meetings with your advisor can prevent wasted time, money, and energy being spent on classes you do not need to take.
