Academic Advising

Getting Ready for Spring 2021 Advisement

We hope you, your families, and all your loved ones are safe and healthy. If you've been directly affected by COVID-19, we're sending you our wishes for recovery, solace, and peace.

We congratulate you on choosing to continue your college education during this challenging time. We encourage you to pace yourself, make realistic goals, and practice self-care.

Even if you're not yet sure about enrolling for Spring 2021, or you still have a tuition balance, please schedule an appointment to meet with your advisor. You'll have the opportunity to assess your progress toward graduation and plan a course schedule for Spring 2021 and reserve your seat in the courses you need and want. It’s okay to change your mind or your plans at a later date.

Advisors are available to you during regular business hours. Schedule your appointment by contacting the CWE Virtual Front Desk, and you will be told how your advisor will be available to communicate with you (email, phone, or videoconference). If you choose a phone or videoconference appointment, you will receive a link to a Blackboard Collaborate session.

Please prepare for your appointment.  Have a paper and pen to take notes, your updated advising worksheet, and a list of questions or concerns.  If you are a continuing student, please log in to your CUNYFirst Student Center page at the time of the appointment. Have the Spring 2021 Schedule either in-hand or on-screen.

If you receive financial aid or are applying, check-in with CWE Financial Aid Coordinator Warren Orange to confirm your status for Spring 2021. If you have tuition balances, be aware that you can be advised, but will have to pay your balance before you can enroll.

Please read over the Schedule of Classes BEFORE your advisement meeting, including the descriptions of the courses you are interested in.

We look forward to connecting with you soon!
