Departmental Advising

Each department has Academic Advisors who can answer your questions about degree requirements and course selection. Your advisor will help you explore potential careers to choose a major and classes based on your goals. Some forms require a signature from your advisor or a departmental advising coordinator. 

If you have questions or concerns about advising, visit the ACES Academic Programs office at 128 Mumford Hall or by emailing ACES-Academics@illinois.edu or calling 217-333-3380.

Tracking Your Progress

You should review your Degree Audit each semester. This personalized audit shows you which courses you must take to complete your degree program, and how the credits you have earned count toward your degree program. If you transferred courses from another institution, they will show up in your audit. If your transfer courses don't show up, you'll need to send an official transcript to complete the transfer.

Resources for International Students

International students can find many resources about advising and immigration services on the International Student & Scholar Services (ISSS) website. The Office of Inclusion and Intercultural Relations provides services and programs to ensure all students feel welcome and supported.

Academic Policies

If you have questions about Academic Policies, see the Student Code, especially Article 3. The Student Code is the authoritative source for rules that apply to undergraduate students on the Urbana-Champaign campus. All students should be familiar with the Student Code.
