COAS Faculty Advisor Information

If you have declared your major, you will be assigned a faculty advisor in that major. You can locate your faculty advisor’s information under your myIPFW enrollment tab or on your myBLUEprint Worksheet. This myIPFW screenshot example displays where your advisor's name and email is located. If you do not see an advisor listed, you can contact a COAS advisor for assistance.

All departments also have a lead advisor. The lead advisor in each department can assist prospective students with questions related to degree requirements, career opportunities, salary information, etc.
