Indiana State University is committed to providing quality advising.
All students seeking undergraduate degrees or programs are assigned an academic advisor. Students can determine their assigned advisors by consulting the college, the department, or their DARS report (instructions below).
Advising is a central component of success. Students who work closely with their advisors are more likely to meet their goals and achieve academic success. Students should maintain regular contact with their advisor, and are expected to work with their advisor prior to registration each semester to ensure the proper sequencing of courses.
Students should run a DARS report each semester to use during the advising and registration period for the next term. The DARS report provides students with a current account of courses taken (along with credit hours and grades earned), and also indicates remaining graduation deficiencies in students' declared degree programs.
To run a DARS report:
Note: Students are encouraged to review their DARS report each term, report any inaccuracies or questions to their academic advisor, and use the report to plan for degree completion. DARS is a tool for students and advisors to use to help track progress toward degrees. It is not a substitute for academic advising, nor does it certify students for graduation.
