Ball State University provides Advising Resource Centers on campus which specialize in specific academic programs. Students are assigned to an advising center based on the student's classification and major.
As freshman, all students are part of the University College Advising Center regardless of their intended or declared major. Each incoming student is given an advising handbook which includes general advising information. In addition, each student is assigned an advisor who is a specialist in working with freshman students as they begin their college years. University College Advising Center is located in North Quad 323 and may be reached at 765-285-1161.
When an Elementary Education major has been classified as a sophomore, she/he is reassigned to the University Advising Center which serves students majoring in elementary education. From sophomore status through graduation, the student's records are maintained in the same advising center. The center at TC 913 may be reached by phone at 765-285-1848.
Elementary Education students are assigned to department faculty members who serve as advisors. Students usually work with a single faculty advisor during the second and third year of teacher education. When the student acquires 96 credit hours, a senior faculty advisor is assigned to assist the student with the final preparation for graduation.
Students may request a Degree Analysis Progress Report (DAPR). The assigned advisor's name, office location, and telephone number are listed at the end of each DAPR. Students may also receive the advisor's name by telephoning the Advising Center to request this information.
