College of Liberal Arts and Sciences students with a declared major are advised by professional staff advisors and faculty advisors after completing 30 semester hours (s.h.) of credit. For more information or to find your advisor, visit the CLAS Advising Network.

All first-semester students and students with less than 30 semester hours are advised in the Academic Advising Center. The center’s team of advisors specializes in transitioning students to academic and student life at Iowa, and help each student plan for a successful academic start at Iowa.

Students interested in pursuing the minor should contact Adrienne Rose, coordinator for the Translation for Global Literacy, in order to be paired with an advisor to develop an appropriate plan of study before their second semester of coursework. Approval of the coordinator is required for admission to the capstone course.

Academic advising questions for students who have earned 30 semester hours or more can be directed to:
