Welcome to the Student Advising Center. We provide Program Sequencing Plans for students to follow in order to fulfill all requirements for their desired plan of study. Email advising@westgatech.edu with your name, student ID#, student email address, and current program of study, and we will be happy to email you a Program Sequencing Plan.

Students who are initially advised through the Student Advising Center at WGTC will be reassigned to a faculty advisor for their program once they reach a certain plateau in their Program of Study.
