Scheduling an Advising Appointment

Due to the ongoing pandemic, meetings with our student service staff are currently taking place virtually (via WebEx or by phone) and by appointment only.  To schedule an appointment, current students can contact our office secretary, Sue Sprong, at 515-294-1064.  If you are currently a biology major, you can also schedule an appointment with your assigned advisor in AccessPlus using the ISUAppointment system.
