The Freshman Academic Advising Center is housed in University College. Our central office location is NQ 339 (765-285-1161). We also have an Upper Division Advising Center serving faculty advisors and upper-division students in NQ 340. The mission of Academic Advising is to provide all the academic pieces needed to complete every students' journey, from their first registration in college to the day they apply for graduation and look ahead to applying the expertise gained from choices they have made.
Academic advisors seek to help students make those choices in the best way possible by opening the possibilities of our programs, putting a plan for graduation in place, helping students plan schedules, using the tools to track progress, and working with students and faculty advisors beyond the first-year experience with their freshman advisor.
All Ball State students are assigned an academic advisor. You should always initially contact your assigned advisor with any questions/concerns about your academic progress, scheduling, the University Core Curriculum (UCC), etc.
