Academic Advising for Adult & Graduate Students (AGS)

The Office of Adult and Graduate Studies freely provides information and counseling for prospective, new and current students. Students may make appointments for individual advising at each program location.

Once a student is accepted as a degree candidate, an academic advisor may be assigned who has experience in the appropriate major. The Office of Adult and Graduate Studies will continue to provide academic advising to all AGS students.

All Iowa Wesleyan students, whether enrolled in on-campus, online or extended campus courses, are encouraged to make full use of on-campus services and technology resources.
