Advising Week

As a Bethel student, you have a team of advisors working to help you succeed from your first day of class all the way until you graduate!

We created Advising Week in order to help each student start well. This special week includes personalized advising appointments for new students, check-ins for continuing students, and large group sessions to share information and resources from across the university that are relevant to our students' success. 

Advising Week occurs three times per academic year.

Our next Advising Week is October 25 - 29, 2021.

Schedule your advising appointment

New students: During the Advising Week of your first term, you will participate in a required, personalized advising session with your Student Success Advisor. Your appointment will be about 20 minutes in length, with plenty of time for your specific questions. To get started, reserve a time for your Advising Week appointment through the link below.

Continuing students: Advising Week appointments are not required for continuing students. You are still invited to schedule an appointment during Advising Week, or at any other time in the term! Simply book your check-in appointment with us using the link below.
