    Advisors and Students: a Partnership

    Academic advising at IUP is a partnership between our students and our faculty and staff. Working together, advisors help students take ownership of their educational goals and professional development.


    • Help students pursue academic, professional, and personal interests and goals
    • Support student success by giving students resources and guidance
    • Encourage student personal growth and independence
    • Guide students as they prepare for the world beyond graduation

    Advisor Meetings Play an Important Role in Success

    Students should meet or talk to their advisors regularly to:

    • Plan their classes for the upcoming semester before scheduling
    • Discuss requirements for their major and their academic progress (which can impact financial aid)
    • Talk about internships and career goals
    • Ask questions
