Department of Computer Information Systems Advising
Advising can be a confusing aspect of your academic career. Who do you turn to when you have a question? We understand this frustration and want you to look from this perspective.
3 Levels of Advising
Advising can be broken down into three levels; university, college, and department.
- For the student that is undeclared or that is an incoming freshmen.
- Help with general registration, course fees, scholarships, etc.
The Jones College Advising Center provides undergraduate business students with advising by professional advisors who assist students in developing an educational plan consistent with career and personal objectives leading to timely and successful graduation.
- For all Jones College of Business students. This includes all levels of students regardless if they are admitted to the college.
- Help with business courses and the Jones College of Business admission policy
- Course substitutions
- Guidance on what classes to take for general education, business core classes, and major/minor classes
- For all CIS undergraduate and graduate majors, as well as minors
- All undergraduate majors are assigned a faculty advisor
- All graduate students are assigned the Director of the CIS Graduate Program, Dr. Jeff Clark.
- All minor students are assigned the Department chair, Dr. Charles Apigian.
- Students should look to their faculty advisor for career advice, internship and job
opportunities, and specific questions about INFS courses.
"There are so many instances where a 20 minute conversation with a student can open up a new opportunity or even save them one or two semesters toward graduation."
