Make an appointment with a Veteran Academic Advisor

  1. Undergraduate Academic Advising appointments are made through our AdvisingWorks Appointment system (AdvisingWorks.wayne.edu). You will log in with your Wayne State AccessID and new Password.
    1. As soon as you log in, you will see a button that says "Get Advising". Click it and then select "1. Make an Appointment with My Assigned Advisor".  This will take you directly to your assigned Academic Advisor based on your selected major
    2. Your Academic Advisor will need to provide you with a Plan of Work or a signed printout from DegreeWorks.  They will know exactly what this is and they will also let you know if you need any placement testing.
  2. Once you have met with assigned Academic Advisor, you will use the same appointment system to meet with Ryan Sieja, the VA School Certifying Official. This time you will select "3. Other Academic Advising (Pre-Med, Honors, Veterans)"
    1. Ryan will also help you with all Veteran related advising issues.
    2. Ryan will need a copy of the Plan of Work and a copy of your Certificate of Eligibility from the VA if you intend on using any VA Educational Benefits
