Even though you are ultimately responsible for your educational experience, successful 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.
To provide you with the best counsel, advisors must have time to review your academic history, plan, and progress. Although some questions can be answered via e-mail or phone, good advising almost always occurs during a scheduled appointment. To schedule an appointment, use the Student Appointment Scheduler available through One.IU.
