Undergraduate Academic Advising
All currently enrolled engineering students are required to meet with an academic advisor once a semester, prior to registering for the next semester courses. Advising for undeclared/first year engineering students takes place in the Student Development Center. Students are required to sign up for a time to meet with an professional advisor, Amy Brewster, Rebecca Machen, or Nancy Schneider before registration begins. Students in their second year and have declared a major will be assigned a faculty advisor in the fall session.
By meeting with academic advisors, students are able to discuss current courses, major options, plan course selection and be authorized to register, as well as discuss any other issues.
Students may also utilize the Peer Advisors to answer questions or concerns. They offer advice on their respective majors, course combinations, course loads and share their personal experiences through their journey to a career in engineering. Peer Advisors are available in the Student Development Center, 3124 SC between 9:30 AM - 12:00 PM or 1:00 PM - 3:30 PM for assistance.
