Academic Advising Guide

IUPUI offers an on-line system designed to help students and their academic advisors to review degree requirements and the student's progress towards the intended degree at IUPUI or any IU campus. The on-line advising system is not intended to replace the need to meet regularly with an academic advisor. Instead, the student may wish to review and print an "audit" to bring with him or her to the advising session. Having thought about different course options and prepared questions will make the advising session more beneficial.

Faculty - Any faculty or staff members who have responsibility for academic advising must be approved by their school or department for access to this tool. Once approved for access, the advisor would use the Learning Management link from One.IU.
