Advising & Career Services Continuity

UW-Madison is committed to the continuity of undergraduate advising and career services in the event of an emergency disruption resulting in the need to shift operations to better serve students. Recommended resources below provide a range of tools and guidance for undergraduate advisors and career services professionals.

General Guidance (updated 9/10/20)

It is expected that advisors, advising units, and career services use remote options for appointments/access during the period in which instruction at UW-Madison will be remote. We do not want to unnecessarily expose staff to illness; therefore, virtual services will be our most viable option.

Appointments should be scheduled using normal methods: Starfish, phone, or in some cases email.
