IU undergraduate Biology students: Hello! This blog is a way for your academic advisors to update you on important happenings in the Biology Department and elsewhere.
Check back frequently to get the latest updates on classes, careers, and campus happenings, as well as other important announcements and opportunities.
In light of the continued community spread of COVID-19 across the U.S. and around the world, Indiana University is extending remote teaching through the end of the spring 2020 semester. To help accommodate the adjustment, spring break has been extended an additional week, with remote instruction beginning Monday, March 30.
Academic Advising during the coming weeks
For the remainder of the semester, we will conduct all academic advising via phone or e-mail. These dates could change with the evolving situation. We ask that you still book appointments with us using Student Appointment Scheduler. Our calendars are now set up to show only phone appointments during these days. You will receive a reminder that will tell you how to access your appointment. When you book an appointment: Please include your phone number, and some details of what you hope to discuss. You can also e-mail us with the details. We may then send you an e-mail with relevant information in it, and we can clarify and discuss that over the phone.
We will do our best to respond in detail to your questions. We can outline your remaining degree requirements and suggest courses for the coming semester. If you’d prefer the clarify of a written conversation, e-mailing back and forth could be a great option.
Students who have recently certified into the College of Arts + Sciences and have not reviewed their degree progress with a College advisor are urged to schedule a phone appointment.
If you are not in Bloomington, please be aware of time zone differences! You can find a time zone converter here. All times listed in the Student Appointment Scheduler are Bloomington (Eastern Daylight Time).
At the time of your appointment, please try to be in a quiet area and at a computer with internet access if possible. If you have already selected classes, please load them into your iGPS planner or shopping cart.
Future students & interested parents: Welcome! We hope that this page will give you a good sense of what’s going on for Biology students at IU. If you have any questions, please contact us by phone or email.
Note: We have moved blog sites! To see posts from the old site, access it here. Any posts from earlier than 2018 will be found at the old site.
