Application process

Students with catalog year 2011 and later must apply to the ISM program. The application process includes resume preparation and posting to BroncoJobs as well as an interview with an ISM faculty member. GPA is an important factor in being accepted into the ISM program.

Students are encouraged to begin the application process as soon as possible and are encouraged to complete the application process in a timely manner.

Curriculum plans

Students should plan their programs of study and confirm that they are meeting the requirements to graduate on time. To stay on track to graduation, it is critical that all ISM majors meet with the ISM academic advisor every semester to maintain current plans and ensure proper course sequencing.

General advising

The ISM academic advisor is your first stop for any questions relating to the program. If your advising question requires help from a faculty member, the ISM academic advisor will direct you to the appropriate faculty member and help you schedule an appointment. 

Students should meet with the ISM academic advisor once per semester.

Graduation audits

You should meet with the ISM academic advisor when you reach 88 credit hours to begin the graduation audit process.  Graduation audits must be completed in the semester prior to graduation.
