Winston-Salem State University takes a "student-centered" approach to assisting its students reach their academic potential by assigning each of them an Academic Success Counselor (ASC), who becomes the student's first point-of-contact regarding all academic advising issues, upon entering the university. The ASC is able to provide you advice on course and curriculum choices, guiding you through the timely completion of the General Education curriculum course requirements of the university.

The mission of Advising Services is to advocate for, support and empower students to persist and progress toward graduation through efficient, holistic, and appreciative advising.  By creating an equitable environment for our diverse student population, we will promote the benefits and value of a liberal arts education, foster student development and success, and stimulate academic and career exploration.  It is also our mission to collaborate with campus partners to ensure continuity of service and provide an excellent educational experience for our students.
