Academic Advising

The University of Arizona recognizes academic advising to be a critical component of the educational experience of its undergraduate students. Through individual, collaborative relationships with academic advisers, students are best able to define and implement sound educational plans that are consistent with their personal values, goals and career plans.

You will get the most from your plan of study if you work with your advisor to think about how to construct a curriculum that will provide you with both a breadth and depth of knowledge in the area you are pursuing, without sacrificing the flexibility required to be successful in a fast-changing world.

Please contact an SI advisor to declare an Information major, and keep in contact with your advisor throughout your plan of study, up to and including graduation
