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
