About Us

Advising Model

The advising model at CI is a partnership between the student, academic advisors and faculty.  Academic advisors assist students from freshman orientation all the way to graduation.  Advising is not major specific at CI but more holistic, insuring academic success on all levels encompassing all requirements.  All academic advisors counsel students on all majors and by a student's junior year it is recommended that students meet with the faculty advisor for their major.  Faculty advisors are faculty that serve as the experts in the major, aiding students major specific issues such as course substitutions, graduate school, course selection and career exploration. 

Academic advisors are busiest during registration periods and the first few weeks of the semester.  Students are encouraged to schedule advising sessions during the non-peak times.
