Please note: Until further notice, all OSS student advising and other meetings will be held online -- review this information about how to connect with advisers.  Advisers will offer virtual drop-in hours and extended appointment availability in order to connect by phone or Zoom.  Students and faculty can also reach advisers and other OSS staff directly via email and they will reply as soon as possible.    

The Office of Student Services is here to help you throughout your studies in the College of Education. From navigating the application process to academic advising to connecting you with other UW services, we are ready to support your success.
