Advising Services

Please Note: CASA Advisors are eager to assist you. We will be working with students by a combination of scheduled in person, phone and zoom meetings to keep the office area from becoming crowded and to minimize health risks for all. Please contact your advisor by email if you have questions about making an appointment or have any advising related questions.


Welcome to the Office of Advising Services! We look forward to helping you navigate your academic journey at UIS.

New students with fewer than 30 credit hours will be advised by freshmen advisors, located in the Center for Academic Success and Advising. Transfer students with 30 or more credit hours but are still deciding on a major are also advised by freshmen advisors.
