Advising at Wentworth
At Wentworth, Academic Advising is a student-centric, campus-wide collaborative effort to support the academic, professional, and personal development of each student, empowering students to make the most of their educational experience. Advisors support students as they explore their interests, talents, values, and priorities. They facilitate the connection between a student's academic experience and future life plans. Students are assisted through this process by their Academic Advisors, a team comprised of faculty and professional staff.
Student Success Advisor
Through the Center for Academic Excellence, all students are paired with a Student Success Advisor. Student Success Advisors are part of a team focused on student success, working with students on their academic plans to ensure completion of graduation requirements, as well as on their goals and success strategies. Additionally, they connect students to other important Wentworth resources and opportunities, helping students maximize their full learning potential and excel academically. Student Success Advisors are assigned by major and can be viewed on EAB Navigate.
Remote Advising Available
At this time, Student Success Advisors are available to assist students with their advising needs remotely, via telephone or Zoom (students may inform their Student Success Advisor if they have a preference). They are available Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 4:30pm. Students can schedule an appointment through EAB Navigate or email their Advisor. To schedule an appointment through Navigate:
1. Log in to EAB Navigate using your WIT email and password.
2. Click the blue “Schedule Appointment” button on the upper left corner.
3. Select “Advising" from the dropdown menu.
4. Follow the prompts and select an available time slot that works best for you. If you encounter difficulty finding an available time, email your Student Success Advisor for further assistance.
Preparing for Remote Advising Appointments
To make the most of an advising appointment, students should include as much information as possible in the “Comments” section of their appointment confirmation form when scheduling through EAB Navigate, this includes but is not limited to the reason for the appointment and preferred telephone number. This allows Student Success Advisors the opportunity to prepare for meetings accordingly to provide students with thorough and efficient assistance. If necessary, students should send their Student Success Advisor relevant documentation via email.
If you have any additional questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Primary Advisors counsel students on curricular matters, monitor student academic progress, review academic policies and procedures when necessary, review student course selections prior to registration, and answer questions regarding student career and educational objectives. First-year students are required to meet with their primary advisor to discuss curricular decisions and to obtain a Registration Access Code (RAC / Alternate PIN). They are introduced to their Primary Advisor during Wentworth Opening Week (WOW) or within the first few days of classes. Students can view their assigned Primary Advisor on Leopardweb.
