SIS Graduate Advising

Located in SIS 250, SIS Graduate Academic Advising is here to help you make the most of your SIS experience by providing information, answering questions, and making referrals to School and University partners dedicated to your academic and professional success.

Students are assigned to advisors by academic program as outlined below. Students can meet with their advisors in two different ways – during Express Advising or via Appointment. 

SCHEDULE AN EXPRESS ADVISING MEETING (MON, JAN 9 - THURS, FEB 2)

Express Advising meetings are 15 minutes in length so that advisors are able to meet with as many students as possible during the busy Add/Drop registration period.  Express Advising meetings should be limited to immediate questions related to spring registration.  Appointments will resume Monday, February 6.  

MIS Students can book an appointment with MIS advisor, Amy Newell.
