About Us

Meet the Whitman Undergraduate staff

Our Undergraduate Office is available to you throughout your undergraduate career.  Meet individually with Academic Advisors, who assist with your four-year planning and provide additional support. You should meet with an academic advisor on a regular basis to check on the status of your degree requirements.

Our office is also the home of your academic records. You may see your records at any time; no one else (other than office staff and your faculty/major advisor) may see your records without your written permission. You are advised to check your records at least once a year to be sure everything has been recorded correctly. It is your responsibility to confirm the fact that you will satisfy degree requirements. Our advisors are able to go through your records with you to ensure that you clearly understand requirements you still have outstanding.
