Freshman IT majors should see UCollege for their advising needs. Beginning sophomore year, students see IT Advising.
It is best to come in for advising early EACH spring & fall semester BEFORE advance registration, which is mid-semester. After we meet, you can then use Course Search to plan your schedule beforehand so that you can register as SOON as your registration time arrives, which is your best chance to get the courses you need. Check for your enrollment date in the Student Service Center. If you canít make walk-ins, email me times you are available outside of walk-ins, & I will set up an appointment.
Course Search opens up prior to Advance Registration and shows all course sections (including those that are filled) as well as general education & IAI courses by category.
See the IT departmental websiteís advising section for links to the waiting list. I can OFTEN give overrides for filled sections of IT courses, if you request a specific section, but I CANNOT give overrides for courses in other departments. You need to contact those departments directly. Let me know if you need contact information. It is the policy of the IT Department to refrain from entering permits for IT courses after the first week of class.
IT Major students may submit a course waiting list request by using this submission form.
IT Minor students, as well as Math majors, Physics majors, Cognitive Science majors, Actuarial Science majors and Technology majors may submit a course waiting list request by using this submission form.
All major courses require a C or better, but 1 D ONLY in supporting requirements is allowed. Math courses, however, always require a C or better to move ahead with a higher level math course. If you are sure you will not get at least a C, contact your advisor right away so that you can revise your plan of study.
The system allows a student up to 2 enrollments in a course, and the new grade replaces the former in the cumulative GPA (for better or worse). Even though a WX does NOT count against a studentís GPA, it DOES count as an enrollment. Students can request a registration clearance for a 3rd and FINAL enrollment from me. Students who do not earn a C or better in a major required course after 3 attempts will not be allowed to proceed with that major.
If you plan to take a course at a community college, check with me to make sure it will come in as a specific requirement. (REMEMBER: If you complete a course at ISU first for a letter grade, you CANNOT then complete an equivalent course elsewhere and receive credit for it here.)
It is the studentís responsibility to find a position. Forms & FAQís can be found on the IT website: http://it.illinoisstate.edu/undergraduate/internships/
If you're not sure about something, don't assume... just ask. Feel free to email me with any questions. Thank you!
