Home / Academic Advising

Welcome to College of Integrative Sciences and Arts Advising!

Academic advising plays an important role in your academic success and we are committed to providing a quality academic advising experience. We can assist you in selecting courses that meet your graduation requirements, as well as help you identify, clarify and achieve your academic goals. Our advising mission is to advocate for student success, retention and graduation through purposeful academic relationships and community building. 

We recommend that you meet with your advisor each semester before you register for your next semester’s classes. We also recommend using the advising syllabus for details about what to expect from your academic advisor and important activities to complete during your first two semesters at ASU.

If you're completing your CISA major via ASU Online, check out the advising page for College of Integrative Sciences and Arts online students.

Undergraduate Students: To schedule an appointment, please choose your campus tab below to find the advising team connected to your area of academic interest. 

Graduate Students: Contact the academic unit associated with your graduate degree program.

Exploratory Students: Effective January 7, 2021, Exploratory students will be moving from the College of Integrative Sciences and Arts (CISA) to University College. University College is home to Major and Career Exploration, Tutoring, First Year Success Coaching, and Academic Success Courses.  We believe this will be a wonderful place for Exploratory students to explore majors and careers, as they complete their first 45 credit hours as a college student.  If you are currently an Exploratory student or wish to declare an Exploratory track, please vist the  University College Exploratory Advising home page  to schedule an appointment with an Exploratory advisor or access Exploratory academic resources and forms.
