Even though you are ultimately responsible for your educational experience, good academic advising is a collaborative process. Instead of providing you with standard, routine answers to your questions, we will give you the information, counsel, and perspective you need to make your own informed choices.
Please download and review our advising syllabus.
- The syllabus lists expectations for the advising process, including learning outcomes like taking ownership of your academic progress and career goals, utilizing resources and services that will assist you in meeting your goals, selecting courses that fulfill your educational plan, and more.
- It also lists recommended reading materials and outlines the responsibilities of your advisor and what you can expect during an advising appointment.
Depending on the nature of your questions and the reason for your visit, we recommend you make an appointment for the best advising experience.
There are two ways to schedule an appointment with an advisor in the Division of Liberal Arts:

- Call 812.348.7393 to request an appointment.
Appointments are generally available between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Appointments outside of normal office hours may be available upon request; please check when scheduling your appointment.
Did you know you must apply to graduate? If you are a student in the Division of Liberal Arts who is pursuing an undergraduate degree and/or minors, please complete one of these forms to graduate.
Completed forms should be submitted to Vicki Kruse in CC Room 162.
View your graduation application status in OneStart Student Center by navigating to "My Academics and Grades" and selecting "Graduation Status." If your graduation application is accepted by the Division of Liberal Arts, you will see "Program in Review" and your intended graduation term listed. Review all the information for accuracy and alert the Office of Registrar Services or your advisor about any errors.
Graduating with a liberal arts minor must also be confirmed. Contact the Division of Liberal Arts to ensure your minor is finalized after completing required coursework. If you complete your minor coursework during the same semester you plan to graduate, be sure to contact the division or your advisor as quickly as possible. There is a short turnaround from registering your final grades to when your degree conferred during commencement.
