This is an exciting time for your Kelley student, but it can also be overwhelming. There are many resources available to help your student with coursework, career preparation, and wellness.
Support your student’s success.
The curriculum at Kelley is rigorous. This might be the first time your child is really challenged in the classroom—and that’s OK. It’s important for them to seek help from their teachers and advisors, as well as use resources at Kelley and IU. Encourage your student to visit the Student Portal on the Kelley website to explore academic support services.
Academic advisors help students explore their interests, plan their path of study, and answer questions. Students can schedule an appointment with an advisor, or visit the office during drop-in hours for quick advising appointments. The Undergraduate Advising Office is located in Hodge Hall 3035.
- Drop-in appointments last no more than 15 minutes and are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Check the Student Portal for drop-in hours.
- Advising appointments are 30 minutes and allow students to talk through complex concerns, including academic goal setting, major and minor exploration, and graduation planning. Learn more and schedule an appointment.
- Peer coaches are students trained by Kelley faculty and staff to provide free academic coaching for specific courses. Peer coaching is available for BUS-A100, BUS-A201, BUS-A202, BUS-C104/BUS-C 106, BUS-C204/BUS-C205, and BUS-G202. Learn more about peer coaching.
- Is your student struggling with Computers in Business? Free peer tutoring is available for BUS-K201 and BUS-K303. Check out Kelley’s peer tutors.
- Students can use th IU Academic Support Centers across campus to get help with quantitative, science, and/or writing courses. ASCs are located in Briscoe, Forest, and Teter residence halls.
- The Math Learning Center is a great resource for peer assistance with math-specific courses such as Finite and Calculus.
- Writing Tutorial Services locations across campus provide feedback on papers and other writing assignments. Although WTS staff members don’t edit papers, they can provide tools to help your student enhance writing skills and improve writing assignments.

Kelley's Undergraduate Career Services (UCS) is one of the nation’s best. Our experienced career coaches provide personalized guidance to help your student find the right career fit and prepare for the job search process.
Students can begin working with a career coach in their first year. Once they’ve enrolled in or completed one of Kelley's career education courses on the Bloomington campus, they can log in to make an appointment with a career coach.
For help with resumes, networking, interviewing, or any quick career questions, stop by the Conrad Prebys Career Services Center lobby from 10 a.m.–3 p.m. Monday through Friday. Check in at the Drop-in Only kiosk and a peer coach or career coach will help you. Can’t make it to drop-in hours? Stop by the Prebys Center lobby from 8 a.m.–5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Once students have enrolled in or completed one of Kelley's career education courses on the Bloomington campus, they can log into Kelley Connect to access job listings, resume tools, and other resources.
