Undergraduate Advisors

Computer Sciences advisors are available for current UW students who are declared in the Computer Sciences major or certificate via drop-ins, scheduled appointments, and email (advising@cs.wisc.edu).

Currently, we do not have the capacity to meet with pre-declared students in-person. Pre-declared students can find their assigned advisor here and are also welcome to email us (advising@cs.wisc.edu) with quick, CS-related questions.

Drop-in advising

Drop-in advising sessions are perfect for quick conversations on topics such as scheduling issues, courses for an upcoming semester, ISS forms, etc. Drop-ins are available on a first-come, first-served basis, therefore, it is recommended to arrive early to advising hours, as space may fill.

NEW THIS FALL: Drop-in advising availability for declared CS students can be viewed by clicking on each advisors’ individual profile in Starfish.

Advising appointments

Advising appointments are perfect for longer conversations on topics such as long-term academic planning, academic concerns, study abroad, etc. Appointments are for declared CS students only and can be scheduled via your MyUW Starfish app.
