Academic advisors in the Department of Technology assist students in the development of plans of study that are compatible with their career aspirations.
In the Department of Technology, academic advising is based on shared responsibility between student and advisor. We believe academic advising is a collaborative process, and ultimately, you—the student—are responsible for your educational experience.
Who We Advise
The Department of Technology advises all undergraduate students who have a minimum of 24 credit hours earned and who are declared Technology majors.
If you have less than 24 hours or you are classified as an Undeclared student, you are assigned an advisor in the University College Academic Advisement Center or the Honors Program. Check your myISU homepage to view your assigned advisor.
