First Two Weeks of Classes--All Walk-ins!

Just a quick announcement--the first two weeks that classes are in session here at IU, we will be having only walk-in advising (no appointments except for special circumstances--call to see if your situation warrants an appointment!). Hours will be:

9:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m.
1:00 p.m.-3:30 p.m.

Walk-ins are first-come, first-served, and are for quick, pressing issues like needing to find a course to fill in your schedule, making a course pass-fail, or other immediate and contained concerns. For extensive academic planning, discussing going abroad, or talking over post-graduation plans, please make an appointment later in the semester.

We will be closed for walk-ins:
Friday, September 4 in the afternoon for orientation
Monday, September 7 for Labor Day (but yes, you do still have class on Labor Day).

Did you graduate in May and still haven't received your diploma? Don't worry--we've been told that it will likely take upwards of 12 weeks for our May graduates to receive diplomas in the mail. If we're a couple weeks past the 12 week mark and still no sign of your hard-earned diploma, give us a call and we'll see what's going on.

You can see if your graduation has been processed, by the way, by checking out your unofficial transcript on OneStart. Log in and proceed as though checking your Academic Advising Report, but select "Unofficial Transcript" instead. It will list your degree under "Degrees Awarded." And, even before you receive your diploma, your official transcript from the University will show that you're a graduate!

And, of course, congratulations!
