Advising and degree planning
You are encouraged to use the online Degree Audit Reporting System (DARS) to check on progress toward your degree. DARS is a useful tool but it should not replace one-on-one degree planning with an advisor in the Academic Advising Center.
- For quick advising questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Advising appointments are scheduled online at http://tacoma.uw.edu/advising.
