Academic Advising

Please contact Laura Owen, the School of Information advisor, to declare an Information major (ISTA or eSociety). Students interested in the eSociety major through UAonline only should contact Kami Merrifield (contact below).

  • Any advisor can declare an Information minor although students are welcome to contact Laura Owen with questions. Minors are encouraged to use walk-in hours rather than booking a half-hour appointment. 

Keep in contact with your advisor at least once a semester throughout your plan of study, up to and including graduation. Please use Wise Advising for appointments (instructions below) or consult the posted walk-in hours. Appointments are never made via email.
