Academic Advising Information

Academic Advising and Career Development
West Hall 109


The Office of Academic Advising and Career Development provides access for School of Environmental Design students to both professional and faculty advisors who assist students with their choice of programs and curricula, help students understand the university and its policies and procedures, and aid students in attaining their vocational and post-graduation goals.

Students must assume primary responsibility for knowing the requirements for their degree and for acquiring current information about their academic status. Academic advisors attempt to avoid errors when advising students about their program requirements, but schools and colleges cannot assume liability for errors in advising.

Newly-admitted freshmen and transfer students are advised for their first semester by professional advisors. After their first semester, students maintaining at least a 2.0 grade point average may independently register for classes online, but they are encouraged to also meet with an advisor. A graduation review is required before a student's final semester.

The services provided by this office include:

For New Students (Freshmen and Transfer):

  • Freshmen: Academic Preview during the New Student Orientation Program.
  • Transfers: required online orientation and small group information sessions.
  • Academic counseling.
  • Registration.

For Continuing Students:

  • Individual academic counseling.
  • Academic progress reviews.
  • Career development coaching and workshops.
  • Curriculum advising.
  • Final graduation clearance.
  • Pre-professional advising.
  • Transfers between colleges and campuses within the university (IUT), withdrawal, re-enrollment, reinstatement and Leave of Absence interviews.
  • Registration assistance.
  • Veterans advising.

For Continuing Studies (Non-Degree) Students, including Visiting and High School Students:

  • Academic counseling.
