At K-State, we believe academic advising is critical to your success, so we assign students an academic advisor in their declared program of study or major. Enrolled students will find the name of their advisor on their Student Center in KSIS. If you do not see an advisor listed, please contact your department or dean's office. These college points of contact are listed on the For Students tab on the left. Your academic advisor is your primary resource for helping you navigate your academic program, find assistance, and identify enrichment opportunities.

Academic Advising Mission Statement
Guided by the fundamental principle that all students have the potential to earn a degree, academic advisors at K-State build trusting relationships with students, helping them navigate degree requirements, make meaning of the college experience, and plan for post-graduation experiences. Advisors teach students skills for self-understanding and agency, adapt their approach to each student, and connect students to resources.
As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, we are closely monitoring the developments. The best place to review guidance regarding remote advising is the Remote Advising website.
