Academic Support Services

Academic advisors at International Technological University (ITU) strive to provide opportunities and build quality professional guidance and academic advising to all students in order to develop a meaningful, safe and supportive learning atmosphere. We assist our students in being able to successfully transition and thrive in an academic environment, to identify, clarify and implement an academic plan for success in order to graduate and reach their academic and career goals.

We provide a safe and trusting environment with the necessary tools, strategies and resources for success. The advising/student partnership requires participation and involvement from both. The Academic Service department also services as a liaison between faculty and staff.
