Academic Advising

After you've completed orientation and assessment, your last step before registering for classes is to meet with an academic advisor. We encourage you to meet with an advisor early so you'll have first pick of the classes you want.

Click on your region's drop-down at the bottom of this page for information on meeting with an advisor at your campus.


Our team of advisors will meet with you to discuss your educational and career goals, then they'll help you design an academic plan that best fits your needs.

All new students will meet with an academic advisor before registering for classes. An advisor will help you determine which courses to take to earn the degree or certificate of your choice, and if your goal is to transfer to a four year college or university, our advisors will help you with that too.


As a continuing student, you will also have access to an academic advisor who will help you determine which courses to take to complete your degree or certificate program. If your goal is to transfer to a four-year college or university, our advisors will help you with that too. See your campus below and the Current Student Resources (on the right side of this page) for more information.

The mission of the Advising Center is to assist students with the development of a meaningful education that is consistent with their academic, personal and professional goals. Academic Advisors help students develop academic completion plans, define goals, and serve as a link to campus resources that will help them be successful.


Students who have never enrolled in classes at Ivy Tech or have not enrolled in classes for two or more years should complete an application, complete or substitute the assessment  and complete new student orientation before meeting with an Academic Advisor. For a complete list of admission steps, please click on the following link: http://www.ivytech.edu/admissions
