Advising for Freshman/Prospective Students

Advising for Freshman/Prospective Students

This section is for the use of Prospective Physics Students and Freshmen who want to be department majors in any of our degree sequences. If you select a major in Physics, you are assigned a faculty advisor who works with you on academic and career advisement while you're in the department.

Besides the general university advising during your transition to ISU and your freshman year, we highly encourage you to meet with an advisor in the Physics Department. We take a proactive approach in developing a relationship with you as an individual to ensure your career goals are met.

We encourage you to make an appointment with a faculty advisor as soon as possible. Email Kerry Stewart or call at 309-438-8756 to make an appointment.

Physics advisees who have an advising or registration question, may email Grace Foote Johns at, or call her at (309) 438-8758.

If you are having problems registering online, write down the exact error message and contact the Registration Service Center (MLT 107).
