The December 30, 2007 launch of the KU Online Advising tool is just the first step in a phased (multi-year) implementation. This first launch included
Access to student record information
Extensive course/class search capabilities
Advisor notes to track interactions between advisors and students
Secure messaging to allow advisors to contact students with important academic notifications
Additional features that are going live in 2012 are
Degree Progress Report (replacing the ARTS form) available to both advisors and students
Graduation functionality (replacing Graduation on ARTS functionality)
As with many online services, additional functionality and enhancements will be added to the Online Advising tool frequently and rapidly. Have ideas or questions about current functionality? We appreciate your feedback.
How do I get access?
If you are a student, you will automatically have access to your own information under the Advising tab of the Kyou portal. If you are staff or faculty with advising responsibilities you can request access to a broader set of information and functionality. Pending approval of this request, you will see additional options on the Advising tab.
Where can I get help?
In addition to documentation provided on this web site, you can contact the Information Technology Customer Service Center at 864-8080. Depending on your question, they can connect you to the right resource.
