Academic advising plays an important role for all students at Illinois Tech. The few minutes it takes to review course choices and discuss scheduling options with an adviser helps ensure all courses taken will apply toward the student’s degree program.

Advising PIN (required for registration each semester) 

Undergraduate and graduate students are required to consult with an academic adviser on course choices in order to obtain the Registration PIN. INTM students must adhere to the following procedures:

Undergraduate Academic Advising

  • NEW STUDENTS must meet with their primary academic adviser to discuss program and course options, set their first semester course schedule, and obtain the Advising PIN.
  • CONTINUING STUDENTS must consult with an academic adviser via phone, email or in person each semester to receive the Advising PIN (consult Undergraduate Degree Works system for adviser information).
  • A new Advising PIN is issued every semester. Once the PIN is used for registration, it will appear in the Illinois Tech Quickview channel in the myIIT Portal (‘Welcome’ tab).

Graduate Academic Advising

  • NEW STUDENTS must complete the INTM Pre-Advising form to begin the academic advising process. This form will be emailed to new students by the INTM office.
  • INTM's academic adviser will respond by email to confirm schedule options and provide the Advising PIN.
  • During the first semester of attendance, new students must complete a mandatory advising session with their primary academic adviser to discuss program and course options. Students are instructed to schedule an advising session using INTM’s appointment system.
  • The GP Graduate (Program) Advising Hold will be lifted after completing the advising session.
  • Once the PIN is issued, it will appear in the Quickview channel in the myIIT portal. A new Advising PIN is issued every semester.
  • CONTINUING STUDENTS are encouraged to consult with their primary academic adviser via phone, email, or in person with any questions about new courses, course substitutions, and/or taking courses from another major (requires adviser approval and an eForm).
