Academic Advisor: A student's principal point of contact for academic guidance such as course planning, registration, and academic counseling.
Academic Advising is intended for the student and advisor to exchange information in a manner that assists students in reaching educational and career goals. This is a SHARED responsibility between the student and advisor, but it is ultimately the student's responsibility to communicate, make decisions, and take responsibility for the plan created to reach academic goals. Advisors can assist by guiding the student with options, determining appropriate resources, identify alternatives if necessary, and creating pathways to success.
If you have declared your major and are in need of academic advising, please contact the school with which you are affiliated. Visit your my.ipfw account home page to retrieve your assigned academic advisor's contact information.
