Who should I meet with?

Students should visit their academic advisor at least once a year to verify that they are on track for graduation. Appointments are required.

The School’s undergraduate director works with students regarding probation, major status, senior project, and equivalence of transfer classes.

After a student is admitted to the CS major, he or she will be assigned a faculty advisor, a professor in the School of Computing who can assist with jobs and internships, research opportunities, grad school or career decisions.

A College of Engineering advisor advises undecided engineering students and helps with late withdrawal petitions, exploring other Engineering majors or minors, the Engineering Entrepreneurship certificate, the EAE program, becoming an Engineering Ambassador.

Your University advisor can help with exploring majors or minors outside of Engineering, University probation, and your general education requirements.
