We are committed to helping undergraduate students fulfill their potential by working with them to find accurate academic information, impactful learning opportunities and solutions to challenges they may face.

All Wilson College of Textiles undergraduate students are required to meet with their assigned academic advisor at least one time per semester to discuss registration and enrollment for the following term and remove the advisement hold. Students are encouraged to meet with their advisor more frequently if desired or if they have questions. Advisor assignments and contact information can be found in MyPack Portal under the Planning and Enrollment Tile. Your advisor should inform you how to schedule appointments with them.
