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. Advising appointments may only be made two weeks in advance.

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.

Not a First-Year Engineering student, but have attended a First-Year Engineering CODO meeting and need to ask a question? Potential CODO students who have attended a FYE CODO meeting may meet with an advisor during walk-in advising times: Please see walk-in schedule.
