Your individual success matters at IU. U.S. News & World Report has repeatedly recognized IU for outstanding freshman programs and residential learning communities. These programs, along with our advising and academic support services, are all part of IU's successful formula for starting college.
If you’re an incoming freshman or transfer student, you’ll meet with an academic advisor during New Student Orientation, and from then on, you’ll always have an advisor in your residential neighborhood, University Division, or the school your major is in. Your advisor can help you explore your interests, choose a major, select your courses, and steadily move toward graduation.
International graduate students also have advisors—often in their academic departments—and all international students can get educational and social assistance from the Office of International Services.
