For Counselors

Counselors are the heart and soul of academic and career advising! For many students, they provide the primary resources, inspiration, and guidance for going on to a college or university. Explore the "For Counselors" area of this website to get the information and tools you need.

The Wisconsin Association of Independent Colleges and Universities (WAICU) wants to work with you as you help your students find the right fit for their college goals. If you or your students have questions, please email the WAICU Student Access Center or call us at 800.433.4733.
