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.


Appointments are 30 minutes in length to allow for in-depth advising conversations, including long-term course/degree planning, and can take place in-person or via phone or Skype. Express Advising will resume in mid-October for spring 2018 registration.

MIS and SE students (both online and on-campus) can book an appointment with advisor, Amy Newell.
