Advising for Engineering Students

Academic Advising is a collaborative process between the student and the advisor, designed to help the student reach educational and career goals. Ultimately, it is the student’s responsibility to make decisions about life goals by creating a plan to reach those goals.

Advising update due to COVID-19 (7/24/2020): President Halloway announced that Fall 2020 courses will be held remotely for undergraduate students. Accordingly, academic advising will also be held remotely.  

Student Responsibilities

Students are expected to prepare for advising in advance by bringing a list of questions and courses you are considering taking.

Make an advising appointment, arrive on time, and cancel 24 hours in advance if you cannot make it. 

Advisor/Dean Responsibilities

The advisor's or dean's responsibility is to help students become self-sufficient, solutions-oriented individuals while still providing them with empathetic service. Students who have complex or critical issues should see a dean instead of an advisor. 

An advisor or dean may provide assistance in helping a student learn how to:

  • Make practical academic plans and decisions.
  • Discover a range of options available.
  • Think through the consequences of the student’s own choices.
