Who We Are and What We Do

Advising & COVID-19

Be sure to follow all University guidelines and health requirements prior to attending in-person meetings. Check the UW Bothell webpage for more information:

Appointment availability may be impacted by COVID-19 health concerns, even if the campus is not officially closed. IAS will make every possible effort to notify students in the event an advising appointment must be cancelled. 

No academic advising services will occur if UW Bothell enacts emergency procedures to ensure the health and safety of our community. Students are encouraged to monitor class cancellations and campus closure alerts using the UW Alert system.
