The primary and necessary task for any undergraduate student has to go through after his orientation is advising. Advising plays a key role in a student's success towards his degree program. Many reports were published recently on the survey of the declining college graduate students. There might be several reasons behind this, but the major drawback of this decline is due to the improper advising of the students. Noticing the importance of the advising system, an Intelligent Advising System is designed which helps the students prepare their degree plan by selecting their major and minor/s. This paper mainly focuses on the importance of the advising system and how the IAS helps the students in online advising.
