University of Southern Indiana

Advising Information

Students are advised throughout their tenure at the University by full-time geology and physics faculty who are available during the academic year to discuss goals, career alternatives, and progress. Close collaboration between the student and the advisor contributes markedly to success.

If you are a first-year student, transfer student preparing to be admitted to your major, or a Pott College student seeking academic and career advising, our Student Advising and Resource Center is available to help.

If you are not sure of your advising status you can check with either the Geology and Physics Department or the Pott College Student Advising and Resource Center.
