Getting a Good START
Whether you're attending college for the first time or transferring to Westminster, academic advising is critical to your success. We want to make sure you receive the personal advising and direction that will address your individual needs and questions. Professional staff and peer advisors are available to help you determine an academic plan that will meet your expectations and steer you toward graduation. All new freshmen and transfer students receive personal attention at the START Center.
The START Center provides a student-centered, intentional and collaborative partnership with undergraduates. This partnership is one in which we work together to develop and empower students' intellectual, educational and personal growth. Through the services we provide, we support the College's mission and vision. We offer the following services through the Center:
We believe academic advising is an educational process. We use a shared model of advising in which all students' initial advising occurs in the START Center. START Center Staff and Peer Advisors assist students in exploring their interests and abilities, examining educational opportunities and developing short term goals. Upon major declaration, students are then transitioned to faculty advisors.
