Academic Advisement

We are here to answer all your ITP related questions!


How to Declare an ITP Minor/Specialization:

If you would like to declare one of our minors or specializations, you’re welcome to make an advisement appointment. No application or admission interview is necessary, but we like to meet with our students to make sure that they have a course plan to complete the minor (or specialization) of their choice. Advisement appointments are usually 15-30 minutes, and are available throughout the week. Please go to to schedule an advisement appointment time that works for you.

How to Order Your Specialization Certificate:

Once you have completed the required courses for a specialization, you can submit a request to us for your certificate.  To submit your request, please log in to MyViterbi and click on “ITP Specialization Certificate Order Form.”  Please complete all necessary details and we will verify your completion and get back to you.  Please note that specialization certificates are only ordered twice a year.
