Advising and Registration

Meet with an advisor to make a plan

Your NSO academic advising appointment—this is when you’ll meet (virtually) with an advisor to talk through your academic plan, including your intended major and classes you plan to take. You will leave this session with your schedule for your first semester at IU!

If you haven’t already, visit the Orientation Portal to make your reservation for your academic advising appointment.

Your advising appointment will have an assigned start time within your selected date/time range noted in your NSO reservation and will last approximately one hour. A few days prior to your NSO advising appointment, visit your confirmation page in the Orientation Portal to verify the date and time of your appointment.

Prior to your NSO academic advising appointment, you must:
  • Complete any required online exams. We encourage you to take your placement tests at least 48 hours before your advising appointment to ensure your scores are available. 
  • Complete Parts 1 and 2 of your NSO Canvas so that your academic advisor can review your information before meeting with you. Confirm that you completed the module for the academic unit that you identified in your Orientation Portal. Completing the wrong section will affect your NSO advising appointment and course registration.
  • Review your FYE Checklist to make sure you’re on track.
  • For international students, review and complete all remaining tasks on your Pre-Arrival Checklist in Atlas (look under Requests).
