Academic Advising

All students who have been admitted to IU Southeast and declare their major in Biology will be advised through the School of Natural Sciences. First year students are required to meet with a Professional Advisor once during their first academic year. 

Students are strongly encouraged to consult with an advisor to review academic requirements, discuss prospective courses, and consider how those courses fit into the overall academic and career plan.

To schedule an appointment with one of the Biology Professional Advisors, please call the Natural Science Advising Office at (812) 941-2184.
