Student Success Story

"I’m very happy that I made the decision to go back to school. While I hadn’t been in a classroom for over 30 years, I found that the professional experience I’ve gained over that time has benefited me greatly and allows me to contribute regularly in class discussions."

Pauline Foley, CPCE student

Academic Advising

Adult student deep in thought in classroom

Wentworth’s academic advisors are here to assist our adult students in reaching their educational goals. Once accepted into the College of Professional and Continuing Education, you will be assigned your own, dedicated academic advisor. We encourage students to reach out to their advisor regularly. Your academic advisor at Wentworth will help you stay on track with your schedule and make sure any concerns you have along the way are addressed.

Although the academic advisor plays a pivotal role in the advising program, it is ultimately the student's responsibility to be pro-active in his or her educational and career decisions. In this process, it is also the student's responsibility to seek assistance from his or her academic advisor and other members of the Wentworth community. The goals of the Academic Advising Program are threefold: to Advise, to Inform, and to Mentor.

We can help you with

  • Selecting and registering for Wentworth courses to meet program requirements
  • Resolving scheduling conflicts
  • Transferring credits (up to 80 may transfer!)
