Coronavirus COVID-19 Information

Iowa State University is monitoring the outbreak of 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). A safety page and FAQ for Coronavirus has been established at: https://web.iastate.edu/safety/updates/covid19. There you will find campus resources, travel updates and FAQs. Please check the page regularly for updates regarding study abroad, restricted travel and other information on the virus.

Academic Support

Most LAS students have an academic adviser in the department of their major or through the Open Option program. Students who are pre-health, pre-medical or pre-law are also encouraged to take advantage of secondary advising support. This is provided through the Student Academic Support unit of LAS and can complement the advising you receive from your academic adviser.

You can find a list of advisers by major here: https://iastate.box.com/s/hfqutgzo2k5b6c5ywcby

We also have professionals dedicated to supporting students who identify as students of color and international students.
