Advising and Tutoring

Your advisor is an expert on three things: Luddy, IU, and you

Your advisor is dedicated to helping you meet your goals. Current Luddy majors have an assigned advisor, and we have two advisors for exploratory students, pre-Luddy majors, and students earning a Luddy minor or certificate.

Current Luddy majors, transfers, and returning students

If you’re a current student and you’ve met the requirements to officially enter Luddy, you can make an appointment with your personal Luddy advisor or email your advisor with questions. Before you meet with your advisor, see your Academic Advisement Report to check on your degree progress.

These advisors also work with admitted transfer students and returning students.
