UAC Services


Adult Learners

At Wayne State, we understand that adult learners bring a wealth of experiences to the classroom, whether those are professional, personal, academic, or a combination of all three. Our goal is to help you pair those accomplishments with the campus resources you need to progress to graduation and beyond!

Exploratory programs

The University Advising Center's Exploratory Program offers advising and programming for students who are unsure of what they'd like to earn a degree in.  Depending on a student's general area of interest - Humanities, Life & Health Science, Physical Science or Social Science - they are assigned an exploratory advisor who will offer a series of programs with the goal of helping a student make a decision by a maximum of 30 credits.  

Pre-law programs

Pre-law advising at the UAC is for students who intend to or are thinking about attending law school. Advising sessions cover the process of preparing for and applying to law school including major/minor selection, enhancing academic competitiveness, LSAT prep, school selection, soliciting recommendation letters, and writing the personal statement.
