Alex Wenger, Academic Advisor - Quad Cities Campus

Ms. Wenger is a native of Durant, Iowa (a rural farming town outside the Quad Cities). She holds an M.A. in Higher Education and Student Affairs and a B.S. in Psychology from the University of Iowa. Before joining Western, Wenger worked as a first-year student advisor and as an academic coach to students preparing for graduate school in the sciences. Her experience at large universities and small colleges led her to WIU-QC which brings together the best of both worlds. Her goal is to support students so they can make informed decisions and reach their educational goals. Wenger is interested in learning about the unique stories behind students’ decision to earn an Engineering degree, and in helping students to navigate the process toward graduation.

You and your advisor share an important responsibility. While ultimately you are responsible for your graduation requirements, your advisor is available to clarify University policies and procedures and to assist in developing your degree plan. You will be required to meet with your academic advisor at least once each semester to register for classes in the next term. Following are typical tasks you may discuss with your advisor:

  • Explore majors within the College and/or University
  • Drop a class
  • Review your degree plan
  • Make a schedule change
  • Declare or change your major
  • Obtain career information
  • Investigate internship possibilities
  • Apply for graduation

Transfer Students

There are two primary paths for students to enter the program: Transfer from a two or four year institution, and by registering with WIU Engineering and one of our partner colleges. Students seeking admission to the Engineering program must satisfy general university admissions requirements and register with both WIU and one of our partner colleges unless all such requirements have been met. Contact the School of Engineering for more details. Transfer students seeking credit for required math, science and engineering core courses must have earned a grade of "C" or better in all such courses to receive full credit.

The Transfer Planning Guide shows the Illinois Articulation Initiative standard course numbers common in most pre-engineering programs, the WIU course number equivalent, and the equivalent course number at the various community colleges. If no course number is shown, then that particular course is either not offered at that college or there has been no articulation. The staff of the School of Engineering is more than happy to help you with questions, so please don't hesitate to call.
