Undergraduate student resources

Biology academic advising

Whether pursuing internships or registering for classes, students can turn to their advisors for help. Advisors refer students to appropriate on- and off-campus resources, assist in academic planning, and provide career development support.

New students are assigned an advisor upon admission to IUPUI and the School of Science.

Undergraduate Advisors

The School of Science recognizes academic advising as central to the IUPUI student experience and critical to student success. Academic advisors can help you learn about important steps to help meet your academic and career goals, direct you to campus resources, help you graduate on time as well as prepare for graduate school or a professional career.
