It is vital to your success as a student that you keep in frequent contact with your academic advisor. Therefore, once you are admitted to Western Seminary and are considering which courses to take first, please contact your academic advisor (assigned to you in your admission letter) to set up an appointment. He or she will be extremely helpful in guiding you through the courseload that would be best for you in light of your family, work, and ministry commitments. Your advisor will also help you with course selection, informing you of the recommended sequence of courses for your particular degree program.
It is highly recommended that you check in with your academic advisor prior to registration each semester. We do have one annual mandatory advising session prior to fall registration. A registration hold will be placed on your student account until that advising session has been completed and a Student Services staff member has been notified.
