The CLAS Academic Advising Center

Academic advising in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS) is a teaching and learning process dedicated to student success. Academic advising engages students in developing a plan to realize their educational, career, and life goals.

The faculty and staff of the Advising Center are committed to assist students in navigating the university system and to help students understand the purposes, challenges, opportunities, and responsibilities of earning a university degree. Academic advisors can help and encourage as students make the transition from high school to university, explore a variety of majors, plan their time to meet the competing demands of family, job, and academic study, take responsibility for their decisions, make progress toward academic goals, and relate their studies to career choices.

The CLAS Advising Center serves exploratory students. The Advising Center is the academic home for students who enter IU South Bend undecided about their academic focus, or subsequently change their major to undecided.

Students with a declared major are advised in their academic units.To determine who your advisor is and how to contact them, see Onestart or follow the "Who is my advisor?" link on the left.
