Academic Advisors at the University of Illinois (IlliAAC) is open to academic advisors, advising staff, and anyone interested in issues concerning academic advising. The committee meets three times a semester, hosts a workshop once a year, and is responsible for training new advisors. For more information, contact Barbara I. Hall, Dept. of Speech Communication (email@example.com or 3-1647).
This book is for students and advisors who work with students from all colleges and curricula on the UIUC campus. It is designed to help users quickly access answers to the basic "who, what, where" questions students most frequently ask and then to make referrals. The handbook is divided by colleges and schools, organized in alphabetical order.
All of the following files are PDFs.
Each college chapter is broken into two columns and each follows the same pattern. The left-hand column consists of University-wide information categories; the right-hand column gives referral information about each category. E.g., to find out about late add/drop procedures for Applied Life Studies, go to LATE ADD/DROP in the left-hand column of the ALS college chapter, the information is in the right-hand column.
The information provided includes basic procedures, who to contact, where the student should go for advice, information, forms, etc.
