Central Academic Advising
JoAnn Hertz, Director
Central Academic Advising is a service designed to assist first-year and undecided students in making academic decisions. Central Academic Advising provides information about campus resources, guidance in developing course schedules and degree plans, clarification of campus policies and procedures, and support in developing effective strategies for academic success.
Advisors also serve as a general resource for all Idaho State University students and faculty. Any student is welcome to contact Central Academic Advising for advising or referral. If students are unsure about whether an advisor has been assigned to them, they may contact Central Academic Advising for information.
Completion of an online advising session is required before course registration is allowed for academic degree seeking freshman and transfer students for their first semester of attendance at Idaho State University. The Fundamentals of Advising and Registration sessions for Freshmen (FFAR) and Transfer (TFAR) students are located on the Central Academic Advising website: http://www.isu.edu/advising/online-advising-sessions-/
Mandatory Advising at Idaho State University is not intended to replace college or faculty advising.
