Academic and Career Development

Academic Advising

The advisors in University College help students choose an appropriate major, develop a plan for completing the requirements to transfer to a school as quickly as possible, and identify university resources they can use to improve their academic standing. Most students find it helpful to meet with their advisor at least once a semester to review their academic plans and to check on changes in degree requirements. In addition, most schools join University College in offering information sessions that review degree requirements and procedures for admission to the majors. Students can call the school they are interested in for information about the date and location of these sessions. All students are required to meet with their advisor during the first semester at IUPUI.

Curriculum Checksheets

University College provides curriculum checksheets outlining academic requirements for each major area. Students may also review curriculum checksheets at any time through the University College Web site (click on "Academic Planning" under "Students").

In addition to the curriculum checksheets, University College provides all its students with the Navigator, a student calendar planner and academic guide that contains articles on many topics vital to beginning students.
