Academic and Career Advising for Current Students

Have questions about courses or degree requirements? Want advice on how to start your job hunt or negotiate a job offer?  Advisors in the iSchool Student Services office are here to help. Our goal is to provide you with quality support throughout your iSchool experience as you explore, develop, and pursue opportunities that align with your life and career goals.

Current iSchool students can email or call an advisor, attend drop-in advising hours, or utilize iCareers to schedule a one-on-one appointment (in person, phone, or virtual).
