ISU has 2 types of advisor roles:  Relationship-based Access or Global Student Record Access.  Most faculty and department advisors are set up with Relationship-based Access.  Advisees' assignment decisions are made by the department/unit and can be recorded onto the student record through the Curriculum Change Request process or by contacting Central Academic Advising.  

If your advising or administrative role at the university requires you to have access to ALL student records, the advisee dropdown menu will not populate.  You will need to search by the advisee’s ID number or name.  

If you have an advisor role, you may access and use the Student Advisor Profile resource.   If you are an advisor and do not see the Advisor Tools heading when you click on the Academics sidebar in BengalWeb, please contact the Help Desk at (208) 282-HELP (4357). 

Accessing a Student's Profile
  1. Login to BengalWeb using your regular username and password. 
  2. Click on the Academics sidebar link.  
  3. Under the Advisor Tools box, click on the Advisee - Student Profiles link.
  4. Use the Advisee Search page to select the term you wish to search. The selected term will determine which advisees you have access to, as well as what information will be displayed for the students.   If you cannot find a particular student, try selecting a different term. 
  5. To search for one of your advisees individually, select which search criteria you wish to enter (Student ID, Student Email, or Student Name)
    1. Note:  When searching by name, you must search using the format of Last name, First name. Once you have entered three characters, a list of students matching your criteria will pop up. You may continue to enter letters to further limit the search, or select a student from the list.
  6. After entering the student ID or email address, press either Enter or tab on your keyboard to initiate the search. 
  7. When multiple student names appear, click the correct one. Once you have a student selected, click the View Profile button. The Student Profile Page will open.
