As a transfer student, you come to The College of William & Mary with academic knowledge and many credits that apply toward the various degree requirements. In your remaining time on campus, we want you to take full advantage of the vast amount of resources and opportunities available at the College. The Office of Academic Advising is available to help you connect with faculty advisors, identify curricular and co-curricular opportunities, and appropriate advising resources to enhance your educational experience.
Your academic advising begins before you arrive on campus. During orientation, you will be assigned to a pre-major advisor who will meet with you and discuss your future academic and career goals, as well as course selection for the next semester. Once you declare your major, you will be assigned to a major advisor in your discipline. Your major advisor can provide you with depth of knowledge about your field of study and will work with you until you graduate. We encourage you to meet with your faculty advisor throughout the year.
