An academic advisor is assigned to each student upon admission to the School of HPER. Because the advisor-student relationship is so beneficial to the student's academic progress and career planning, School of HPER students are required to meet with their assigned School of HPER academic advisors before registering for classes each term. During these meetings, a student and advisor identify the courses in which the student will enroll for the following term. The resulting semester schedule is recorded on an Academic Advisor Registration Approval Form and signed by the advisor. The student must submit the signed form to the Records Office in HPER 115 to receive clearance to register. Paper copies of the Advisor Registration Approval Form may be picked up in HPER 115, or the form may be downloaded online at www.indiana.edu/~hperwww/academics/forms/index.shtml. (Additional registration information is available at http://registrar.indiana.edu/studentreg.shtml.)
Students seeking baccalaureate and master's degrees may use online academic advisement reports and printed degree requirement tab sheets as effective tools to track academic progress. Academic advisement reports (AAR's) are available to admitted Indiana University students at onestart.iu.edu. AAR's allow Indiana University students to view their completed and enrolled course credits in a context that shows completed academic program requirements, as well as those requirements that remain unfinished. In addition, requirements for each degree program are outlined on printed degree requirement tab sheets, available in HPER 115. The tab sheet for each academic program specifies such requirements as total credit hours needed for completion of the degree, courses to be taken, GPA requirements, suggested electives, and other information. These advising tools are used by students and their academic advisors to guide the selection of courses and monitor progress. Adhering to stated requirements is the student's responsibility.
A doctoral student will have course work individually prescribed by the student's faculty advisory committee. Doctoral students must meet with their academic advisors to determine the sequence in which to enroll in the prescribed courses.
