Schedule an Appointment!

Current UW Tacoma students schedule an appointment online with your academic advisor*

  • Appointments must be scheduled one day in advance
  • During peak periods (e.g. registration), we encourage scheduling two weeks in advance
  • Appointments are scheduled for 30-45 minutes in length and you can use as much of that time as you wish for a productive advising conversation

To request disability accommodations, including American Sign Language interpretation, please contact the Disability Resources for Students office at 253-692-5617 (voice), 206-692-4413 (TTY) or drsuwt@uw.edu at least 10 days in advance.​  The University of Washington Tacoma makes every effort to honor disability accommodation requests. Requests can be responded to most effectively if received as far in advance of the event as possible, preferably at least 10 days.
