First-Year Engineering Advising

First-Year Engineering has a staff of professional advisors, available to help students in a variety of academic success, registration, personal, and professional issues. The advisors are here to be a student's definitive source of information and advice; students can consult with their advisors any time they have a question or problem, no matter how small.

Advising Appointments

Plan Ahead

  1. You may make an appointment up to two weeks in advance.
  2. Be on time for scheduled appointments. If you arrive later than five minutes after your appointment start time, your advisor may ask you to reschedule.

First-Year Engineering Students Online Appointment Scheduling: Appointments should be made for the following: registration advising, discussing plans of study, issues of a personal and/or educational nature, exploring engineering options, questions about University and College policies, assistance with resumes, career questions, SEP and MyPurdue Plan, general questions and concerns.

Walk-In Appointments

Walk-in questions with professional advisors are appropriate to:

  • resolve conflicts in your schedule
  • complete paperwork
  • sign a credit authorization form
  • ask time-sensitive questions

Walk-in times are designed for quick questions and therefore are held to 15 minutes per visit. Students should only use walk-in times of their assigned advisor unless the assigned advisor is not available and there is an immediate time sensitive matter. More information about walk-in times, including the schedule, is available here.


Potential CODO students

If you are not a First-Year Engineering student who has viewed the First-Year Engineering CODO video and need to ask a question that your current advisor can’t answer, you are welcome to come to ARMS 1300 to meet with an FYE advisor during walk-in advising times: Please see walk-in schedule.
