Professional Advising Center

Quality academic advising is an essential component for achieving educational success in college. At WVU Parkersburg, all newly admitted students begin with an advisor in our Professional Advising Center (PAC). The PAC advisor helps students register for classes and plan their academic schedule based on their chosen major.

  • – Priority Registration for the Fall 2020 semester begins April 6. Check your OLSIS account for details regarding who your academic advisor is. You will need to schedule an appointment with your designated advisor before registration begins.

Communicating

The most important thing during this transition is to check any and all messages from both the University and your professors. The University will send updates about changes on the COVID-19 Updates page and via your WVU Parkersburg email.

Your instructor will specify what communication method will be used in your specific course (email, Blackboard, etc.). These could include the following tools, which all students have access to:

  • Email: All University-related emails will be sent to your school-issued email address. Your instructor also can send you emails through Blackboard.
  • G Suite: Google offers a variety of collaboration tools that provides group chat (Google Hangouts), live document collaboration (Google Docs) and more. These services are free! Simply login to your university email to access these tools to stay connected with classmates and friends or work solo on school projects. You can even access G Suite on your smartphone.
  • Blackboard Announcements: In addition to your school email, your professor may send updates and information via Blackboard announcements. These will appear in the “My Announcements” section on your Blackboard account. You may not always receive an email notification for new announcements, so be sure to check your announcements regularly.
  • Zoom: Zoom For Student Use
