Undergraduate Engineering Academic Advising - FAQs
What are the advising procedures for incoming Engineering Freshmen and Transfer students?
Engineering freshmen receive academic advising for first and second-semester course registration through participation in the University Freshmen Orientation Program. This is a mandatory program for all freshmen. Visit the website below for details:
All first-year students will be assigned a first-year advisor and will be transitioned to the College of Engineering once the requisite course work is complete or they have reached 30 credit hours earned.
Initial academic advising appointments for transfer students are conducted in the Engineering Dean’s Office.
Transfer Credit Evaluation:
- During an academic advising appointment, new transfer students will receive a transfer credit evaluation.
