Academic Advising - Southwestern Illinois College

Academic Advising provides guidance to ensure students are on track to achieving their educational goals at SWIC. Degree-seeking students are required to meet with an advisor if enrolling in classes for the first time.  

How Advising Works at SWIC

Once registered with the college, each student is assigned an advisor based on their chosen academic program. The advisor’s name and email can be found on the Student Center page in eStorm.

Students will then make an appointment with their designated advisor to meet at a specific time.

Effective Aug. 1, 2024 – Belleville Campus
